(Phlox drummondi grandiflora)
Tapestry’s heat-tolerant little star shaped flowers naturally arrange themselves in clustered color patterns. The delicately fragrant blossoms are beautifully balanced in soft clear shades of lilac, pink, rose, cerise, geranium, chamois, vanilla and white, many with tinted eyes or picotee edges — a true tapestry of sweet color and form. The vigorous plants offer a free blooming 1 to 2 foot tall carpet that attracts butterflies all season long.

TO START OUTDOORS

Sow seeds in a well-worked seedbed in full sun when danger of frost is past and weather is warm and settled. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 10 inches apart, cover about 1/4 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 10 to 15 days.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

Three to four weeks before last expected frost, sow seeds 1 inch apart in seed starting mix and cover lightly. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are well established. Transplant after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart when large enough to handle.


GROWING NOTES

Phlox grows easily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. If sown in place, thin plants before they get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep them productive and disease free. Seedlings grow somewhat slowly at first, but once established, make sturdy, long blooming garden performers that tolerate hot weather and often blossom through the first light frosts.
