Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Better known as Night Scented Phlox, this intriguing little perennial produces a beautiful vanilla fragrance that perfumes the evening air. The cup-shaped, white flowers are formed of intricately cut petals, like tiny doilies! The reverse of each bloom is suffused in deep red, creating a striking contrast.

The foliage of Zaluzianskya ovata 'Star Balsam 'is sticky in texture and remains semi-evergreen all year round. Grow it outdoors on the patio table in summer where its scent can be enjoyed on warm summer nights. Although reasonably hardy, it is best moved to a greenhouse or conservatory in winter to protect it from cold, wet weather. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
