A Phlox for the Phront! Unusual for a Garden Phlox, this petite charmer can be placed front and center to flaunt its bright pink overlapping petals and glowing eyes. Beloved for their fragrant, large flower trusses and mid-summer color.
From the Top Shelf® Series, Phlox Cosmopolitan will fill the air with sweet perfume. Dwarf, compact and well-branched. Phlox, derived from the Greek word meaning flame is in reference to its intense flower colors. When most plants are on their summer siesta, Garden Phlox provide a much needed shot of color. Large blossoms in a range of colors.
Phlox paniculata provide unsurpassed flowering in summer, clear crisp colors and fragrant flowers in profusion. Good cut flower, a choice selection for the colder zones. We specifically carry disease-resistant Phlox varieties.

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.
