    • I am enchanted with the Blueberry Intensia Phlox! I planted two of them in a large pot and they immediately became the prettiest part of the arrangement. The flowers are similar to tiny petunias in a rich purple. They make a fluffy mound of color and when planted near the edge, drape elegantly over the side. These are my new favorites!

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I can only find the Intensia Blueberry Phlox and no other colors of phlox where I live. I was disappointed to see my blueberry phlox develop mold on the leaves and begin to look sickly. All my other plants are doing fine except for this one.

    • A bit of a late bloomer, but it kept on coming and even resisted early frosts!

    • This is a great plant. We have a large long outdoor flower box, which face south and is great. It also withstood a very bad winter with temps in the 30's.

    • Amazing little hybrid. We live in the Hawaii of Canada and our weather is very hot in the summer in the Okanagan Valley. I will use this in place of Lobelia for sure.

    • What a beautiful color with incredible performance. I planted this in full sun with orange NonStop Begonias and it was an incredible display. This year I'm going to grow lots more of this Phlox. It is a Proven Winner!
