#ProPlantTips For Care

Hybrid Phlox do great in full sun in cooler growing zones 4-8 and partial sun in warmer regions. The thick leathery leaves have good powdery mildew resistance but for best results, provide a location with good air circulation for best results and the healthiest foliage. Morning sun is helpful in preventing this as well!

Consistent moisture levels are best, but these are tough perennials and tolerate a wide range of conditions. Best in well-drained moist soil.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

The Fashionably Early Series boasts a long season of color and this tall garden Phlox will provide you with a long bloom time and even repeat blooms in the fall!

Deadhead throughout the growing season and prune back in early spring before new growth appears.

Fashionably Early Crystal Phlox has been a garden standard for decades and it’s easy to see why! Order your own fragrant blooms and gleaming white color to enhance your own garden beds by ordering from today!
