Phlox paniculata Lord Clayton

Phlox paniculata Lord Clayton

Leaves of 'Lord Clayton' emerge deep purple with lime-green veins and stems. Maturing leaves shift toward purple green, but retain lime-green accents, providing the perfect foil for the cherry-red blooms. If you love jewel-tone colors and foliage that won't be ho-hum green, this Garden Phlox is for you. Excellent mildew resistance. Discovered by garden designer and writer Tammy Clayton in her Michigan garden. PP 22,960

This important genus of valuable garden plants includes reliable and colorful species that bloom both early and late, in sun and shade, and in a range of rich colors that is equaled by few other genera.

The glorious summer bloomers often have a spicy vanilla-clove perfume that is perfectly enchanting. We are, therefore, distressed to see these Phlox falling out of favor for reasons that we suspect relate to problems with powdery mildew, which is much less common in modern varieties, or if plants are sited where there is good air movement and grown in soil that doesn’t dry out. They can be backbone plants for any sunny border. Good companions include Shasta Daisies, Echinacea, Lilies, and ornamental Grasses.
