3x Phlox "Laura", Purple/White - Bare-rooted

Phlox paniculata Laura'
Pure phlox "Laura". Fresh from the garden.
Need a bona fide bee and butterfly magnet? The phlox "Laura" is what you are looking for. It gets its name from the Greek word for flame. And this phlox "Laura" is definitely on fire. Its large, fragrant, purple/white flowers sit atop 80-90 cm tall stems. You will receive the phlox "Laura" as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. The phlox starts flowering in the summer. This will continue for months. The phlox needs a spot in full or half sun. It thrives in pots on the balcony, patio or roof terrace. But it does well in the garden too. After planting, water the phlox regularly. They will take root better this way.

Planting+

Phlox 'Laura' is a perennial that grows best in the garden. Prepare a large hole in good, loose soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in compost and cow manure pellets. Plant the Phlox 'Laura' at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the roots should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Phlox 'Laura' grows and blooms well in the sun or partial shade in loose, nutritious soil.

Care+

Phlox 'Laura' is an easy-to-grow perennial that can remain in the same spot for several years. Make sure you prevent the soil around the roots from drying out. Dry soil is not well tolerated. Phlox 'Laura' grows well in moist soil but can survive in regular garden soil although we do recommend a regular application of fertiliser during the growing season. Remove the faded flowers to encourage a second flowering. The stems above the ground die back in winter. Cover the plants with a layer of fallen leaves. In early spring, apply a mulch of manure. Cut off any all old flower stems. Soon there will be some new shoots appearing above the ground.

Extra+

Phlox 'Laura' is a great choice for the garden with its hearty clusters of flowers. The purple coloured flowers are divided into five petals with a white eye in the centre. The flowers spread a delicate fragrance and are highly attractive to butterflies.
