Cultivar Notes - 'Sweet Seduction Blue'
Sweet Seduction Blue has fragrant lavender-blue flowers that will last for weeks in spring, they appear to dance above the tiny green foliage on 6" stems, when in full bloom all you see is flowers and no leaves, this dense growth habit helps keep the weeds out, prefers to be grown in shade.
Series Notes - Sweet Seduction
An exciting new series introduction, Sweet Seduction is an interspecific series with excellent shade tolerance. Adaptable for both full sun and full shade, these varieties perform best in partial shade. Tiny, round leaves give interesting texture to this semi-spreading series. Vernalization is required for consistent flowering.
Species Notes - Phlox stolonifera
Mostly low-growing and slowly spreading, these phlox are ideal for the woodland or semi-shaded border. Plants bloom heavily in spring and often rebloom later in fall.
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.
