Phlox paniculata ‘Delilah’

Summary

Phlox paniculata ‘Delilah’ performed well during the first year of the trial. It even garnered a powdery mildew resistance rating of “excellent” that year. Unfortunately, the second and third years were much worse, receiving a powdery mildew resistance rating of “very poor”. The floral display was also greatly reduced during the second and third years, probably as a result of poor plant health. Perhaps with greater horticultural care (supplemental watering) this cultivar would have performed better.
