#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant herbaceous perennial Garden Phlox in full sun and good Air Circulation - at least six hours of sunlight for the most flowers and brightest color. Provide well-drained soil, and be sure to give them supplemental water during their first year and apply water in a prolonged drought. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch around your plant, but make sure to pull it back from the stems.

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. But, if you live in Deer Country, be sure to use Deer Repellent during planting, guided by the instructions on the label.

  • Full Sun Blooms
  • Regular Moisture & Well-Drained Soil
  • Deadhead After Flowering & Prune Late Autumn
  • Cold Hardy & Easy-Care Plants & Widely Adaptable
