Phlox paniculata-Garden Phlox

Propagating Phlox Paniculata or Garden Phlox, a standard cottage garden plant, can be done either in the fall or spring, by separating 3-5 vigorous shoots before new growth in the spring shows, and transplant preferably into a sandy moist amended soil in full sun because partial shade planting can bring on powdery mildew. When separating the crown throw away the parent plant, every two to three years, which becomes woody because blooms will decrease. Their fragrant blooms will appear in July -August in either orange, red, pink, purple or white and can reach a height of 30"-42". Deadhead for re-bloom. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to its nectar but so are deer. Garden Phlox is deciduous.
