I gave this 4 stars becuase this plant survived the travel from Michigan to Illinois. It also is strong and healthy. It has not bloomed yet which, as a novice, scares me. But all in all I would order another one.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Phlox are best grown in consistently moist soil that drains well, in full sun. Mulch after planting. Provide regular fertilization and good airflow around the plant. Avoid overhead watering. Deadheading will prolong the bloom time and prevent self-seeding of non-sterile varieties. Cut to the ground in autumn or late winter & remove dead material from the garden to prevent the spread of mildew.
