Scottish botanist, Thomas Drummond, starting sending phlox seeds from Texas back to Europe in 1835. After years of breeding, this phlox was born. The intriguing star patterns on bi-colored, clustered blooms make Starry Eyes a captivating addition to your cut-flower garden. Pollinators and hummingbirds are drawn to the quick-to-bloom, fragrant blossoms. Blooming may pause in intense summer heat, to renew in the cooler days of late summer and fall. In cooler areas, blooms continue through the summer.

Absolutely LOVE the vibrant color and variety of shades in these seeds. I started them indoors and they weathered a hard spring well with cold temps and strong wind. They were the first sign of color in my garden and the flowers stay around nearly FOREVER! I do wish I had pruned them back a little in the beginning so they did get legging and tilt over but it was my first time trying these seeds. DEFINITELY will buy again!
