Cotton Candy is a new spin on the classic tall garden phlox soft pink flowers with bold pink centers create a calming effect in the garden. At 2 ft. tall With large panicles of pink flowers at the end of strong green stems it can provide an anchor for any garden and is a great midsized plant. Paired with stronger pinks Cotton Candy serves to blend pallets of purple, white and pink together while allowing the eye time to observe and take in stronger colors. Much like a good rug, it can really "tie the garden together" and may make nihilists recognize that beauty does indeed exist. 

Pollinators adore tall garden phlox with hummingbirds, sphinx moths and butterflies queuing up to take a drink of the fragrant candy-like nectar. Cotton Candy supports a variety of colors and pairs well with purple, darker pinks and even mixed yellows as a foundation planting or garden bed. Blooming from mid to late summer you will delight in the color, fragrance and activity around Cotton Candy all summer long.

The 'Candy Store' series of phlox was bred for outstanding color and resistance to powdery mildew. If you've grown tall garden phlox before, you know how wonderful it is to see phlox emerge and bloom, only to see them become covered white mildew. Candy Store stands up to this problem better than any phlox we've grown.

Phlox Cotton Candy

Beautiful plant! Came very well packaged. No stems were broken or bent. I have bought plants from other online stores and was very impressed how well the plant looked and the careful packaging. Thank you so much!
