Provide watering regularly and a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch, especially in drought conditions. Make sure this plant has good air circulation too. This will keep the plant from feeling overcrowded and underperforming! Avoid overhead watering, as this can be stressful on the flowers and encourage mildew to form.

Deadhead after the flowers fade to encourage a rebloom, 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.
