Phlox paniculata 'Lord Clayton'
Common Name: Garden Phlox
'Lord Clayton' Garden Phlox produces large cherry red flower panicles in mid to late summer, but the foliage is the really unusual break through. The leaves start in spring in shades of eggplant purple with lime green veins. They mature in summer to bronze and greenish purple, matching a showy background for the showy fragrant flower clumps. Deadheading will promote an extended flowering period. Phlox paniculata 'Lord Clayton' makes a showy cut flower, as well as an excellent garden native for pollinators. Found by garden writer Tammy Clayton in Michigan and introduced by Plants Nouveau.
