Phlox-Hybrid Garden

Named for its nearly ever-present, bright pink flowers, this hybrid phlox has fantastic impulse appeal in containers. Compact, clump forming, evergreen plants are disease resistant and drought tolerant. Sterile blossoms appear prolifically after creeping phlox but before tall phlox. Deadheading promotes rebloom. Breeder: Dr. Jim Ault

Grower Information

  • Take care not to plant too deeply
  • Best in 1-gal containers
  • Moist, well-drained soil with a 6-6.5 pH
  • Pinch plants prior to or shortly after planting
  • Follow an average watering regime
  • PGR rates to achieve sufficient control are higher on Phlox; begin applications early in the crop cycle

Pot by mid-spring to make sure plants are well-rooted before summer. Grow with a medium EC to minimize rapid growth and long internodes. Cut plants back to promote lateral branching or use PGRs to control height.
