PERENNIAL PHLOX Paniculata
Wow! These seeds are extremely challenging to collect, and very few are produced. Nevertheless, they are a beautiful tall perennial for your garden! They are very easy to grow, and are tolerant of various sun/ locations, and various soil types. Ideally they like a sunny location, and good soil, but we love them because we can grow them in the dry and they still reach full height, and bloom like crazy! Stems are tall and very strong, never flopping over. The flowers are also very attractive to butterflies of all kinds.
These seeds have been collected from various colored flowers, though we have chosen to only show the lilac/pink color as almost all seeds (no matter the color they were collected from) will be this lilac/pink color. Perhaps there will be some surprises in there?
Type: Hardy perennial
Height: 48", 4 feet
Location: Sun or
Hardiness zones: 4-9

Seeds per pack: 10
Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds benefit from a period of moist cold to help them grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
