Phlox paniculata ‘Glamour Girl’

6 Photos


Phlox paniculata ‘Glamour Girl’ is a medium height cultivar (3’ tall) with stunning coral-pink flowers in midsummer. The large blooms begin in early July and last for nearly six weeks. In addition to its gorgeous flowers, ‘Glamour Girl’ also stands out for its vigorous and lush habit. Some powdery mildew was observed throughout the trial; however, it was never severe and did not cause much actual damage to the leaves. In a garden without hundreds of other phlox plants ‘Glamour Girl’ would likely be exceptionally clean.
