JUNIOR™ Dance needs to be planted in a full-to-part sun area in well-drained soil. Once Phlox are stressed, they will usually develop some degree of mildew, so plant these herbaceous perennial Phlox in a cool, slightly shaded (afternoon shade) location, and provide humus, moist soil and a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch for best results.
Deadhead after the flowers fade to encourage a rebloom. The plants will continue to bloom on the bushy laterals and if the old flowers are deadheaded. Then prune your Phlox back in late autumn after frost has reduced these herbaceous perennials down for the year. Prune Tall Phlox right after the blossoms fade and tidy up the mounds in late autumn after frost. While no plant is truly deer resistant, they do not prefer the taste of these plants. Every 3-5 years, it's recommended to divide your clumps to maintain vigor and provide you with extra plants to expand your enjoyment. If you live in high Deer pressure areas, be sure to use Deer Repellent during planting, guided by the instructions on the label.

Most Garden Phlox do spread some but politely so - not getting into trouble and not jumping their borders. Should the clumps become too large you can easily divide them.
Deadheading Phlox helps prevent some varieties from self-seeding and encourages a rebloom.
Phlox needs well-drained enriched soil with good air circulation for best results. Mulch their beds and fertilize them each spring.
Phlox are herbaceous perennials that will lose their leaves and stems after frost and die back to the ground. In spring, they regrow from their root systems anew!
