Plant Information

Please note: due to this plant featuring on Gardener's World, we have now sold out. We have plenty more growing on but they won't be ready for a few weeks. If you'd like to be informed when they're ready, please drop us an email. 

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.

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 hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
