Quick Overview:

A hybrid Phlox with a color that’s bright enough to give a karate kick to your senses. Very intense, bright fuchsia pink flowers totally cover the relatively short habit. As a hybrid, ‘Kung Fuchsia’ will bloom 2-3 weeks earlier than the standard¬†Phlox paniculata¬†varieties and is not bothered by disease such as mildew even in hot, humid summers.

Description

Grow in moderately fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. Best in full sun. Prefers rich, moist, organic soils. Needs good air circulation (space well and thin out stems as needed) to help combat potential powdery mildew problems. Intolerant of drought and needs to be watered in dry spells. Avoid overhead watering however. Appreciates a summer mulch which helps keep the root zone cool. Remove faded flower panicles to prolong bloom period and to prevent unwanted self-seeding (cultivars generally do not come true from seed).
