Cultivar Notes - 'Intensia® Orchid Blast'
The beautiful purple blooms have a deep pink ring around the throat and a delicate white eye. Orchid Blast banches freely and blooms continuously in the heat and humidity. New in 2010.
Genus Notes - Phlox
Europeans first became aware of Phlox around the 1630s, after the exploration of eastern North America by John Tradescant the Younger. But only in the eighteenth century did the gardens of Europe receive this species from various American colonies. As botanical explorers ventured farther west, more kinds of Phlox were found.

Through hybridization and selection, the varieties of Phlox grown today far surpass their predecessors in depth and breadth of color, length of bloom, plant habit, and general constitution. Improvement continues to this day.

The large trusses of flowers held atop sturdy, leafy stems offer rich, sweet scents. Their fragrance readily wafts about the garden, traveling amazing distances through the air. The low-growing varieties of Phlox, with their showy flowers, are particular favorites and bloom in spring or early summer.

There are big Phlox and small Phlox, spring Phlox and summer Phlox. All produce masses of five-petaled, often fragrant flowers in a range of colors. Garden Phlox need rich, evenly moist soil, creeping Phlox require excellent drainage.

Series Notes - Intensia®
Their heat and humidity tolerance, sweet fragrance, and rich colors have earned 'Intensia' a special place in the hearts of gardeners. Amazingly cold tolerant, they could easily be the last plants left blooming to greet the snow.
