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 air flow 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 spread of mildew.
