Maintenance Notes: 

Self-cleaning, deadheading not necessary. This is not necessarily true of all Phlox.

  • This plant is amazing - bloomed from early spring to late fall. Even after 3 weeks of below freezing nighttime temperatures, it is still blooming!

  • Love Phlox... tried unsuccessful to grow the annuals from seed for years and then saw the intensia hybrid at PW... bought 6 plants and they havent stopped blooming since I got them end of April... loved that i had these flowering with my tulips and daffodils :-)

    they are a bit floppy so make sure that they are front of the border or in containers....
    i highly recommend em...
    happy gardening!!!
