Phlox 'Minnie Pearl'

Phlox-Hybrid Garden

Our #1 selling Phlox. Prized for its superior disease resistance, early and long bloom time, and excellent presentation in containers. Fragrant, bright white flower clusters appear atop the clump of glossy, green foliage all summer. Spreads slowly by rhizomes; does not reseed. Thrives in heat.

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.
