Red Riding Hood Phlox

Red Riding Hood Phlox 'Red Riding Hood' is a garden phlox cultivar which typically grows in an upright clump to 1.5-2' tall. Fragrant, tubular flowers (1/2" to 1 inch diameter) with long corolla tubes and five flat petal-like lobes are cherry red. Individual flowers are densely arranged in large, terminal, pyramidal clusters (panicles to 6-9" long) atop stiff, upright stems which seldom need staking. Long mid to late summer bloom sometimes extends into early fall. Narrow, opposite, pointed, lance-shaped leaves (to 5" long). Good fresh cut flower. The name phlox is derived from the Greek word for flame.
