If you love Phlox you are going to
fall head over heels for Laura. Rated as a top performer by gardening experts and
quickly becoming our most popular variety of Phlox. Laura is a flowering machine -
the fuchsia-purple blooms begin to appear in early July and continue all summer long. The
flower heads are huge, measuring nearly 12 inches. The vigorous plants are compact
and a little shorter than most garden phlox. The plants grow to only about two feet in
height. Laura has demonstrated very good resistance to powdery mildew.
Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Fertilize in early
spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Liquid feed with compost tea or
fish emulsion just as buds begin to form in midsummer. Remove spent flower heads to
prolong flowering. Keep plants well watered during hot dry spells.
