Intensity of Phlox is an offspring of the Phlox that is a native for the South West in the United States. But a parent like that, you know, this plant is tough. It can really take the heat and humidity. It is an annual Phlox that produces the same hefty blooms as its perineal cousins but with much more gusto. Not only will this Phlox hold up during the dog days of summer, it can also handle a light frost so it will be the last bloom to fade in your fall garden. Now, that is one long lasting flower do you not think?
Intensia has won awards in areas across the country proving that this little plant will perform in a variety of growing conditions. You see, all of these varieties in the series grow between 10 and 16 inches tall and have an upright willowy form reminiscent of wild flowers. Although diminutive in stature, the blooms are large often up to an inch across. And partial to intensia cabernet, a deep magenta, an intensia neon pink which is very hot pink.
