Pure phlox "Lilac Time". Fresh from the garden.

It's a lovely shade of lilac. We adore this bee and butterfly magnet. It boasts huge flowers that bloom on 80-90 cm high stems. Not to mention that they smell wonderful. You will receive the phlox "Lilac Time" 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 should be planted in full or half sun. It thrives in flower 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 'Lilac Time' 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 'Lilac Time' 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 'Lilac Time' grows and blooms well in the sun or partial shade in loose, nutritious soil.

Phlox 'Lilac Time' makes an excellent companion plant

The stunning Phlox 'Lilac Time' is an eye-catcher in the flower border and in flowerbeds. The hearty flower clusters are borne on long, sturdy stems. Plant Phlox paniculata 'Lilac Time' at the back of the border, along with Monarda ‘Mohawk’ and Leucanthemum ‘Wirral Supreme’. The Phlox also combines beautifully with roses and also with plants that have variegated foliage. If you want to see your flower bed filled with large groups of colour then Phlox paniculata 'Lilac Time' is an excellent choice.

Care

Phlox 'Lilac Time' 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 'Lilac Time' 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.

Cutting back Phlox 'Lilac Time'

Early in the season you can prune your Phlox by about 2-5 cm and this will encourage a healthy and bushy growth. After the first flowering the stems can be cut back by about 10 cm to just above a point where there are healthy leaves and this will encourage a second flowering period. If there are any signs of powdery mildew cut back the whole stem and destroy both stems and foliage. Cutting back Phlox does help to control this.

Extra

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