Phlox General Information

Phlox divaricata are mildly fragrant, carefree natives for part shade. Foliage forms a creeping mat of loosely entwined stems with semi-evergreen oblong leaves. Excellent when combined with late spring flowering bulbs or as an underplanting. Prefers a moist soil.

Phlox Plant Care

Trim back after flowering to the low green foliage for lush new growth. Do not prune in fall, clean-up winter damage in spring. Can be divided every 3 to 5 years in spring right after flowering or early fall.
