Phlox, Blue Paradise is rated out of 5 by 2.Rated 3 out of 5 by Undine from Not Blue The first plant I ordered arrived broken of right at the soil and I was sent another. The stub of the broken plant miraculously grew back eventually. They are very pretty, but flop over when heavy with blooms. The color is more of a bright magenta.Date published: 2012-09-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth from Outstanding color I ordered Blue Paradise with David phlox this year. When the plants arrived, I noticed that the Blue Paradise stems were darker with an almost deep maroon streak going through them and the leaves were a darker green so I could tell the difference between David and Blue Paradise even without reading the labels. The Blue Paradise is less vigorous than David (stems are weaker, plants are a bit shorter) but they bloomed first in a part shade bed. I am giving it 5 stars for the color which is deep and bold - it is more of a dark violet and not necessarily blue. It goes wonderfully well with pinks like Shortwood phlox.Date published: 2007-08-10
