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 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.
