Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise' (Garden Phlox)

Border Phlox 'Blue Paradise', Fall Phlox 'Blue Paradise', Garden Phlox 'Blue Paradise', Perennial Phlox 'Blue Paradise', Summer Phlox 'Blue Paradise'


One of the bluest Garden Phlox, Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise' features large lavender blue blooms with white centers and tiny red eyes that float atop the attractive dark green foliage. Opening from deep blue buds, the sweetly fragrant blossoms turn violet-blue during the day and indigo in the evening. They are born on deep purple stems which enhance the ornamental quality of this Phlox variety.

  • Blooming for weeks from mid to late summer, the flowers are rich of nectar and visited by hummingbirds, butterflies or birds which adore them!
  • Grows in upright clumps of stiffly erect, branched stems up to 3-4 feet tall (90-120 cm), clad with narrowly oblong, deep green leaves.
  • Prefers full sun to very light shade and enjoys moderately fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils. This plant needs good air circulation! Avoid overhead watering and add summer mulch to keep the root area cool.
  • This variety of Garden Phlox is remarkably mildew resistant, allowing us to fully enjoy our garden rather than worry.
  • Excellent choice for the perennial borders where the dazzling flowers are welcomed in any color scheme. May be planted as a single specimen or in groupings.
  • Deadhead to preserve a neat appearance, promote new blooms and prevent self-seeding. Cut back stems after flowering is over.

Phlox paniculata is a garden classic that is considered by many as the backbone of summer borders. The striking billowing masses of large, fragrant clusters of white, lavender, pink, rose, red and bi-color, blossoms enliven native landscapes and grace gardens for weeks. Despite its well-known susceptibility to powdery mildew, Garden Phlox remains a perennial favorite prized for their dramatic, long blooming floral show.
