Phlox is a pollinator magnet for your summer garden. Pollinators are a vital part of life on planet Earth since they pollinate most flowering plants for them to reproduce. Pollinators do this by transferring pollen from bloom to bloom. Pollinators have been in decline in recent years due to habitat loss and disease.

Plant Phlox in the spring after all danger of frost has passed in a full sun to partially shaded location in moist but well draining soil. Soil preparation: The ideal soil is porous and drains well and yet still holds enough water for the roots. If your soil is heavy clay and drains slowly, or very sandy and does not hold water, add organic soil amendments (peat moss or ground bark). Spread a 3-4" layer of soil amendment, add fertilizer and incorporate together into the soil to a depth of 10". To plant: Dig a hole 1-2" deep in a partially sunny (at least 6 hours of direct sun), well drained location. Place the phlox in hole with roots pointed down and space 18-24" apart. Cover with soil and water. Mulch in extreme climates.
Taller blooms may need staking.
