So versatile, this beauty plays well with both bright and pastel garden companions. Domed clusters of fragrant, crisp white flowers with a subtle lilac throat nestle within the deep-green, mildew-resistant foliage. This socialite is ‘Fashionably early’ for a Garden Phlox! The flowers of Phlox Fashionably Early Crystal appear from early summer into midsummer and may even lightly rebloom in fall. The thick leathery, dark-green foliage remains beautiful all season. It maintains a stoloniferous, multi-stemmed habit as opposed to tightly clumping. A beautiful addition to any sunny border. A favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds.

Phlox General Information

Phlox Plant Care

Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Phlox can be divided every 3-5 years in spring or fall. In spring, just as new growth appears, dig up the plant and divide clump with a sharp knife or spade into at least 2 or 3 shoots and a portion of the root system. Plants divided in fall should be mulched with a 4-6” layer of straw or pine needles to prevent heaving. Remove mulch in early spring. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off spent blooms just above foliage. To help avoid the possibility of mildew; provide plants with good air circulation (in spring, snip out all but 4-6 stems in a mature clump), avoid drought-like conditions, site plants where they will get sufficient light of six hours or more each day. Should a spray program become necessary, products exist on the market for prevention and control. Removing mature blooms will prevent seeding, if not desired. Clean up spent foliage in spring.
