Productinformation

Phlox Drummondii grandiflora Crème Brûlée

This annual phlox Crème Brûlée has breathtaking colors, making the flowers great for any flower arrangement. Despite being an annual phlox the seeds are easy to germinate and plants require little attention. The only downside for us was that the bunnies in the neighborhood also liked them a lot. The plants start with flowers on short stems but the longer they flower, the longer the stems will become. The plants flower quite soon, giving you great garden plants first and fantastic long-lasting cut flowers around the middle of summer until autumn.

How to grow annual phlox Crème Brûlée from seed

Start seeds indoors or in the greenhouse from February till April. Seeds need to be in the dark to germinate. Some additional warmth will speed up the germination process. Plant out the seedlings as the weather has warmed up a bit, usually around April. You can direct sow seeds but we have not tried this ourselves.

You can start the seeds in the 77 or 40-cell seed tray and transplant them to larger pots later, or plant them out in the garden if the weather allows. Use good quality compost when starting the seeds in seed trays. If you have applied new compost in the autumn additional fertilizer is not required based on our experience. Some support once stems get longer is recommended. Plants also look fantastic in pots, combined with taller plants in the back. Or in hanging baskets!
