Tenor Tall Phlox

Add Some Late-Summer Sizzle
Rich color and a spicy perfume, Tenor is a fantastic pick-me-up in mid to late summer. It'll grow to about 30-32", which fits nicely in the middle of a border, as the brilliant blooms won't get lost in the background. You can use Tenor all over the garden. It'll fit in with the warm palette in a container garden and help a cottage garden finish summer strong. It's very easy to grow, so busy gardeners can still wind up with an impressive display. It's spicy blooms are loved by butterflies, but not so much by deer. And if you want to bring some of that good cheer from your garden indoors, Tenor is a lovely cut flower.
