When to Plant Phlox Roots
Plant your Phlox Roots in the Spring - we ship out these Perennials based on USDA hardiness Zone so they should be planted when you receive them in the mail.
Where to Plant Phlox Roots
Plant your Phlox Roots in a space with well-draining soil. If it doesn’t drain well or has standing water long after a hard rain, you can amend the soil with organic material. Phlox like full sun or dappled shade - if you are in an area with strong sun, consider planting them in the partial shade so they have some protection from the sun.
How to Plant Phlox Roots
Phlox Roots should be planted between 2 and 4 inches below the ground with the top of the root ball even with the soil surface. Fill in your soil around the root ball and water well.
How to Care for Phlox
Keep an eye on the water levels in your soil and water if your Phlox look wilted or brown. Phlox flowers look great in cut flower arrangements, so feel free to cut some flowers off! When your plant starts to die back with the Fall weather, you can leave it as is or clip the foliage to about 2 or 3 inches above ground to encourage growth next Spring.
