Phlox is a favourite of the classic cottage garden, and Flame Coral is a vibrant addition to the ranks, with rounded heads of coral red flowers over a long period in summer. Compact so won’t flop, as taller varieties are prone to do, and highly resistant to mildew. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 18 in. 2 litre pot.

The introduction of the Flame series of garden phlox dates back over a decade now, when they were in the vanguard of repopularising this classic of the cottage garden, which had fallen out of fashion a bit, probably because of the tendency to flop, to sport lots of bare stem and to suffer from mildew. The Flame series, and others of the same ilk, sorted out these problems and allowed the cottage gardener to enjoy the beauties of a good phlox without the associated problems.
A bit of deadheading will keep the flowering going. Cut back old stems in winter or early spring.
Phlox Flame Coral is a hardy perennial with lance shaped leaves and heads of scented coral red flowers from summer into autumn suitable for sun or semi-shade.
