Phlox paniculata 'Shockwave'

Garden Phlox

Plant Type: Perennial
FULL Sun

Thanks to our good friends at ItSaul Plants who introduced P. ‘David’s Lavender’, we now have a fabulous stable variegated sport to offer.

The shocking variegated foliage of this new selection has incredible impulse appeal. It could certainly be grown for its foliage alone; the large clusters of lavender pink flowers with a white starburst center are a great bonus.

From spring into early summer, the leaves are deep green with prominent, sunny yellow margins. As the season progresses, the margins lighten to creamy yellow.

Use this plant to brighten up combination containers or mix with purple foliage plants like Sedum ‘Xenox’ for especially explosive contrast!
