Phlox White Delight
Phlox White Delight, Phlox subulata 'White Delight', produces pure white flowers that can be used to give a classic elegant look when surrounded by greenery or for contrast among colors.
Phlox 'White Delight' is a versatile, low-growing perennial that flowers in late spring, and grows well in rocky or sloped areas. 'White Delight' is also useful for edgings and borders.
This popular and charming little perennial is an easy to grow ground cover in full sun. Gritty, slightly alkaline soils are preferred and good drainage is essential. It's a good idea to shear this plant back and clean up any dead foliage in early summer, just after it is finished blooming. This will produce denser foliage and will encourage it to rebloom. This summer blooming and amazingly short plant, is an exciting selection that is also suitable for planting in containers.
Its medium texture blends into the garden, and 'White Delight' flowers are excellent for bouquets. Try balancing this plant with a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition. 'White Delight' has a cool and calming effect in the garden so use it to tone down more intense, saturated colors.
