‘Tiara’ is the very first double white Phlox paniculata hybrid. The individual flowers of ‘Tiara’ can be either double or single, and the petals unfurl like a rose bud making even the single flowers appear double. The flower panicles are borne atop relatively short plants from mid to late summer. Ideal for cut flowers because the flower petals are drop resistant, meaning they hold their petals until the entire cluster is spent. Popular with hummingbirds and butterflies.
