Eye-Catching Pink Blooms
Phlox "Cosmopolitan" is popular right now because of its...
• consistently gives you that "Wow" shade of pink
• love of sunny locations
• disease resistance
Bright-pink Wow factor
Look no further than Phlox 'Cosmopolitan' for a flower that adds vibrancy to your garden beds in the form of bright-pink petals surrounding a fiery-red center. Contrasted against these 4 inch clusters of pure Wow color are narrow, deep emerald green leaves, that add up to nothing short of an eye-catching display. And you can bring this stunning display indoors as Cosmopolitan makes an excellent fragrant cut flower.
Loves Sunny Locations
Phlox 'Cosmopolitan' is happiest in a sunny location so that's good news if you have an open, exposed space in a yard that needs filling with bright color. Cosmopolitan is not particular about soil type or alkaline levels as long as the ground has even moisture and is well-drained. This is a good plant to grow in urban gardens as it's not bothered by pollution. Phlox 'Cosmopolitan' has good powdery mildew resistance, but spacing the plants apart from each other anyway won't hurt.
Strong Design Statement
Phlox 'Cosmopolitan' grows to just 16 inches tall making this a dwarf phlox and suitable for the front of borders or around the edges of containers. It's visually most effective grown in a mass where its bright pink flowers make a strong design statement. Mix it with red flowers to highlight the Cosmopolitan's fire-red center or tone down it's warmth by pairing it with cooler colors such as pale lilac or mauve.
