Phlox paniculata ‘Laura’ (garden phlox)

Phlox paniculata 'Laura’

This garden phlox cultivar is easy to grow and purportedly mildew resistant, preferring full sun and moist, humus-rich soil. The dense flowers of phlox ‘Laura’ are deep lavender purple with a white eye and appear in later summer and will last until early fall.  

According to Missouri Botanical Garden “’Laura’ is a garden phlox cultivar which typically grows in an upright clump. Fragrant, tubular flowers (1/2″ to 1 inch diameter) with long corolla tubes and five flat petal-like lobes. Individual flowers are densely arranged in large, terminal, pyramidal clusters (panicles to 6-12″ long) atop stiff, upright stems which seldom need staking. Good fresh cut flower.” Propagated vegetatively from plants in the Rhododendron Discovery Garden.
