Tall PhloxBotanical Name: Phlox


Planting Distance—18-24" apart. Dig a hole twice the size of the pot your Tall Phlox came in. Carefully remove the plant from the pot. Score a vertical mark on all four sides of the root ball to encourage roots to grow out into the surrounding soil. Hold the root ball in the hole with the top of the root ball level with the surrounding soil surface and carefully fill in around the root ball. Firm the soil around the plant with your fingers to remove any air pockets. Water thoroughly after planting.

Soil Preparation
Although Tall Phlox do well in average soil, for optimum results you can improve
your soil as follows:

Continuing Care
Tall Phlox should be grown in clean cultivation, and they should be watered once each week in summer whenever rainfall is less than 1" per week. Each spring, apply a surface dressing of Spring Hill’s Advanced Formula Plant Food to your plants, scratch into soil and water thoroughly.

As flower heads fade, cut back old flower stems and, in many cases, you’ll enjoy a second flowering.

After your Tall Phlox have finished blooming in the fall and foliage begins to die back, cut the plants to the ground and remove all foliage. After the ground freezes, apply a 2-4" layer of mulch to protect the roots in areas where the ground tends to heave during periods of alternate freezing and thawing. Remove winter mulch in spring, being careful not to damage young growth.
