Plant Description

A terrific new perennial was created when plant breeders took a low mounding phlox species and crossed it with a taller species with large flowers. Wanda is a fuchsia colored hybrid with the best of both plant and bloom sizes and appears to be a whole new category of garden phlox. We received our start of this beauty from herbaceous plant genius Allen Armitage of the University of Georgia where it has received high marks in their trial gardens. It seems that another trait brought on by the hybridization is ceaseless flower production spring to frost.
