Joining EARLY PURPLE™ Phlox, EARLY PINK DARK EYE™ adds another color to this popular early blooming hybrid Phlox series. This beautiful Phlox produces a profusion of light pink flowers with dark pink eyes. The goal of the Early Start series was to introduce varieties that bloom 2-3 weeks earlier and are more compact than Phlox paniculata. EARLY PINK DARK EYE™ is the perfect choice for retailers looking for early color on neatly compact plants and gardeners wanting color in the garden earlier in the season. 

This Hybrid Phlox looks similar to a Tall Garden Phlox, but is shorter and blooms at least three weeks earlier than P. paniculata. It is a terrific perennial for retailers looking for early color on neatly compact plants and gardeners wanting color in the garden earlier in the season.
