Phlox paniculata ‘Grenadine Dream’

7 Photos


Summary

Phlox paniculata ‘Grenadine Dream’ is a relatively new cultivar with a medium sized habit and pinkish red flowers. Spider mites were a frequent and sometimes severe problem with this cultivar, much more so than powdery mildew. However, powdery mildew was bad during the second year of the evaluation. Unfortunately, these stresses seemed to have contributed to a reduced floral display. During the third year, both spider mites and powdery mildew were at their least severe, and as a result, the floral display was actually quite good.
