Description / Phlox 'Fashionably Early Crystal'

Phlox 'Fashionably Early Crystal' is a captivating garden phlox that graces the early to late summer garden with its pristine beauty and sporadic rebloom in fall. Unveiling its splendor 2 to 3 weeks earlier than the average tall garden phlox, Phlox Early Crystal features billowy masses of pure white flowers, each accented with a delicate light purple eye. This variety is not only a feast for the eyes but also a haven for pollinators, with its sweetly fragrant flowers attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds alike.

Phlox 'Fashionably Early Crystal' stands out in the garden with its multistemmed, herbaceous structure and compact, upright habit, showcasing lanceolate, glossy, bright green leaves. As a stoloniferous plant, it gently spreads, making a significant impact when massed together. This tall hybrid phlox variety is perfect for mixed beds, middle to back borders, and even containers, thanks to its versatile and disease-resistant nature.

Thriving in full sun to part shade, 'Fashionably Early Crystal' Phlox prefers rich, organic, moist, well-drained soil with a neutral to acidic pH, but it can also tolerate clay soil. Exceptionally mildew resistant, this plant benefits from summer mulching to keep its roots moist and cool, while good air circulation aids in preventing mildew issues. It's also noted for being deer and black walnut resistant, with deadheading encouraging further blooms.

As a native North American plant, Phlox 'Fashionably Early Crystal' contributes to the ecological balance of the garden. Native plants like this offer countless benefits, including adaptability to the climate and soil, reduced need for fertilizers and watering once established, and support for local wildlife and pollinators, enhancing garden biodiversity.

If you are looking for a flowering ground cover or a pollinator-attracting, sweetly fragrant flower for your cottage garden, take a look at phlox. With the variety of plant forms, blooms styles, and flower colors, phlox will add beauty to your garden space.
