With highly fragranced blooms that open through the summer, the buds emerge like little match sticks over the plant before bursting into a myriad of shining pinwheels.
An easy-to-grow, compact plant, the scented night phlox is an alpine perennial that forms a neat mound of aromatic, evergreen foliage topped with an abundance of petite buds which open in the evening to reveal the sparkling white flowers and a fabulous honey-vanilla scent.
Flowers close in the heat of the day and in the evening they unfurl releasing their intoxicating perfume! Night-scented plants are common, but the overwhelming sweet fragrance of Zaluzianskya is one of the best!
Normally treated as an annual in the UK, it can be over-wintered in a pot in dry, frost-free conditions.
To really appreciate Night Phlox, plant up into your favourite container and add to tables when alfresco dining.
