Phlox Grandiflora Creme Brulee
This Phlox is one of our favourites, not only because of its unusual colour combinations but also because of the flower clusters with their heady, opulent scent. They are stunning in a vase and a great match with just about every other flower. We could try to describe the colours of this lovely Phlox, but in this case, a picture says more than a thousand words. Regular deadheading will prolong flowering until frost sets in. This Phlox also does very well in a pot! The annual summer flower is also called ‘flame flower’ in Dutch, probably because of the flame-red colour of the wild species.

Annual flower seeds
All our flower seeds produce flowers that are suitable for use as cut flowers. They are also used by professional nurseries and floriculture companies. For flower seeds to be considered high-quality, they need to have outstanding germination capacity and energy and therefore yield a high percentage of flowering plants. All seeds are annuals, which means that they have a lot of growing power: they go through all the stages – from a seed to a flowering plant that, in turn, produces new seeds – in the space of just one season. Most flowers bloom for about three to five months. A rule of thumb in this is that the more flowers you pick, the faster they will grow back! All our seeds are untreated and uncoated, and are also suitable as starting material for growing organic flowers.
- Plant in moist soil to which the seeds stick for best germination.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil of approx. 0.5 cm.
- Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
- Give them a sunny spot and sufficient protection from strong winds. Support if necessary.
- Water regularly.
Phlox is also an ideal plant to grow in a pot or other container. Keep the soil slightly moist.
