From Holland's Jan Verschoor comes this stunning Phlox paniculata hybrid that arose as a sport from Jan's Phlox 'Candy Floss'. Phlox 'Peppermint Twist' makes a sturdy clump of 16" tall stems topped, starting in late June (NC), with large flower heads of fluorescent pink and white striped flowers. The overall effect is similar to Phlox 'Natascha', but much more robust and more of a candy pink instead of lavender. In the afternoon, the flowers are deliciously fragrant...simply surreal and a hummingbird delight. For us, Phlox 'Peppermint Twist' gets only a small amount of powdery mildew in damp summers.
