David summer phlox (Phlox paniculata 'David') is covered with fragrant white flowers from midsummer through fall on a plant featuring the most disease- resistant foliage of any of the white-flowered cultivars. Flowering height slightly exceeds 3 feet tall, and this phlox spreads to about 16 inches. Plant in full sun, in moist, well-drained soils, and avoid excessive fertilization. 'David' was awarded the Perennial Plant of the Year award by the Perennial Plant Association in 2002.
