Garden Plant: Peppermint Twist Phlox
Product Description: Peppermint Twist Phlox
Delectable Color and Hardy Form This remarkable phlox variety features a dwarf nature with delicious color, and a scintillating fragrance that drifts on the afternoon breeze like no other.
Like the peppermint twist candy of its name, Peppermint Twist Phlox offers up delicate blooms that feature pink and white stripes from July into September.
The stripes emanate out from a pink center, creating an eye-catching visual that is impressive in its own right.
However, gathered together in large clusters against the deep green foliage, Peppermint Twist’s flowers are nothing short of magnificent.
Your Peppermint Twist Phlox is a herbaceous perennial that will grow up to 20 inches in height with an equal spread.
It has an upright form and is adaptable to a variety of soils.
With a shorter and stockier nature than other phlox varieties, Peppermint Twist can more easily stand up to harsh weather conditions, and its strong stems do a great job of holding its clustered, flower heads aloft.
Peppermint Twist maintains color throughout the season quite well on its own, but with a little deadheading, you’re sure to enhance your blooms well into autumn.
Plant several for an impressive border, or scatter a few around high traffic areas like patios and poolside.
The candy cane blooms create an impression wherever they’re placed.
Peppermint Twist Phlox will provide delectable color for your yard this year on a plant with a hardy, carefree nature.
It’s the type of perennial that seems to jump out at you in the summer garden.
Why not plant one this year and see for yourself how impressive this dwarf phlox really is!
