This garden phlox has been a customer
favorite here at the nursery for years. Bright Eyes is planted in one of our largest
display beds and always draws the attention of passers by. The very large flower
heads are pale pink with a very prominent hot-pink eye-zone. A very relible and long
blooming variety - Bright Eyes begins blooming in late spring and stays in color right up
until the cool weather of fall sets in. The butterflies have to share this Phlox
with the humming birds - both are attracted to the very fragrant blossoms. Bright
Eyes has demonstrated very good resistance to powdery mildew for us and our customers have
reported the same findings.
