Plant Details

A fantastic plant for the patio or where you sit in the evening. During the 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. 

Zaluzianskya ovata needs a good, rich soil that is Well-Drained in winter. Hardy down to about -5c.

Usually flowers from June to August but may also flower outside of this period. Cut back hard 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.

Height and spread: 25cm (10in)

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 at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
