Plant Overview

A fantastic plant for the patio or where you sit in the evening. During a sunny day the flowers close to a lovely red hue and then as evening draws in the bright white flowers open to display their full glory and release a beautiful scent.

Aromatic, evergreen foliage that forms a dense, neat dome. The pink, match-head like buds remain closed during the heat of the day and then open wide to reveal the white upper parts of the flower and release the heady scent. 

Usually flowers from June to September but may also flower outside of this period. Cut back after flowering and you should be rewarded with a second flush of flowers.

A valuable food source for moths, which have seen their numbers decimated in recent years.

Works very well at the edge of a raised bed, front of border or in a container on the patio. Happy in reasonable shade but will flower better with more sun. Can be planted in a container and moved to a sunny spot during the flowering months.

Hardy down to at least -5c. Our plants came through the 'Beast from East' which was colder.

Height and spread: 25cm x 30cm

Zaluzianskya is named after Adam Zaluziansky von Zaluzian, a 16th-century Bohemian botanist.

Common name(s): Night Scented Phlox



All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
