A native woodland phlox found in moist, partially shaded woodland sites. Tall garden phlox is an herbaceous perennial that returns consistently year after year from a thickened root stock.
PLANTING: Space plants 12 to 15 inches apart in full sun to partial shade. In warmer climates, provide more shade. Performs best in an average garden soil that is well-drained, and contains extra organic matter.
MAINTENANCE: Water during periods of drought. Mulch with straw, pine needles, shredded bark, or chopped leaves to conserve moisture.
