Phlox 'Opening Act Pink-A-Dot' Description
Unique for its white flowers with cool pink centers, ‘Opening Act Pink-a-Dot’ tall phlox is a sassy note for cottage or cut flower gardens. In early summer you can count on a cloud of blooms, which appears pink from afar. If you sheer back spent flowers after the first bloom you can expect more of a show in fall! Its foliage remains handsome throughout the season, due to better mildew resistance and heat tolerance than other varieties, so even that will look nice accompanying the flowers in your floral arrangements.

ReviewsWrite a reviewAmazing Condition of PlantsBeverly Singleton | Jun 10, 2020I would like to say how thankful I am for the quality of the plants. They were well watered and the foliage was bright and green. I have never received plants in such great condition. This spring I have spent nearly $200 for dried twigs from other companies that died within days after planting. Going forward this is the only on-line company I will be purchasing garden plants from.
