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 at the base of something taller. Prefers a moist soil. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Phlox Plant Care

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