#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Laura Garden Phlox in a full sun location. If Phlox plants are stressed, they will usually develop some mildew issues, so keep the location cool, and slightly shaded, and provide moist, humus-rich soil. For best results, supply these hardy perennials with supplemental water on a regular basis and a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch. This choice is great for low-maintenance landscapes and new gardeners.

Deadhead Phlox immediately after the flowers fade and you may just enjoy a rebloom later in the growing season! Prune down the stems once frost kills them back in the autumn. Divide your clumps every few years and enjoy increased vigor - and free plants to extend your Phlox enjoyment in your landscape!

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Regular Moisture & Well-Drained Soil
  • Deadhead After Flowering & Prune in Fall
  • Resistant, Adaptable & Easy to Grow!

What beauty these lavender-rose, tightly clustered flowers offer, all summer long. Make sure you order several Laura Tall Garden Phlox from Nature Hills today!
