Phlox General Information:

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.

Phlox Plant Care:

Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Phlox can be divided every 3-5 years in spring or fall. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off after bloom, just above foliage to encourage more blooms. We specifically carry disease resistant Phlox varieties. 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.
