Phlox paniculata ~ ‘Natural Feelings’

August 2, 2008

blooming phlox natural feelings

Tall phlox brings a burst of color to the mid summer garden, and one of my favorites for its unusual coloring and twisted petals is ‘Natural Feelings’.

The rosy pink petals are striped with green and never fully open, giving it a look much like statice.  Not only are they long blooming and draw much attention to the garden border, they are also a long lasting cut flower for flower arrangements.

Growing information:

Hardy zones 4 – 8

Bloom time – mid summer, long blooming

Height – 24″ to 30″

Plant in sun, with good air circulation to help prevent mildew
