Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes'
Bright Eyes phlox has an alluring mix of characteristics that bring enchantment to gardens. We think the new foliage with very dark maroon edges that give way to emerging buds of similar color are remarkable. Fragrant flowers open to reveal a lovely pink and white, which are highly attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. Summer blooms usually show from July to September. This splendid perennial works great for borders, beds, and mixing with other perennials to bring out a delightful blend of color and textures.
Bright Eyes grows to around 2' tall and 2' wide. We recommend placing them about 24" apart when mass planting. This perennial requires well-draining soil and prefers full sun, but can tolerate light amounts of shade. Cold hardy to -25°F when protected from windchill.
