Scottish botanist, Thomas Drummond, starting sending phlox seeds from Texas back to Europe in 1835. After years of breeding, this phlox was born. The intriguing star patterns on bi-colored, clustered blooms make Starry Eyes a captivating addition to your cut-flower garden. Pollinators and hummingbirds are drawn to the quick-to-bloom, fragrant blossoms. Blooming may pause in intense summer heat, to renew in the cooler days of late summer and fall. In cooler areas, blooms continue through the summer.
