Product Information

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.

Supplied as 3 jumbo plug plants ready to pot up and grow on before planting out when all risk of frost has passed.

Top Tips

Plants dislike being wet and cold, so water sparingly over winter and protect from frost.

Care Information

  • Zaluzianskya ovata needs a fertile soil that is moist during the summer and well-drained in winter.
  • Best grown in pots as it is not reliably hardy except in mild areas or warm, sheltered spots.
  • Cut back hard immediately after flowering has finished.
  • Don't let the pots dry out in summer as this will make the stems of the plant become woody.
