Description

From a few yards away, the flowers appear white. But as their light, delicious scent draws you close, they change, chameleon-like, to a pale glistening pink. Close inspection reveals delicate pink flecks on a cool white background. Elegantly erect habit, with tall flowers swaying in summer breezes. Bloom begins in July and runs through August. The bane of many older phlox varieties is powdery mildew. ‘Flower Power’ offers excellent mildew resistance, so nothing mars its multiple wands of subtly hued flowers rising gracefully over smooth green foliage. Comes to Rozanne and Friends® from breeder Darrell Probst, Hubbardston, Massachusetts.
