    • Three plants were ordered and arrived in great condition. They were planted in the garden along a border in zone 8a. Not one of the three withstood the Texas heat, even with adequate watering.

    • I planted three of these in full sun in my mailbox bed last year. Not only did they get mildew both years, but they toppled over this year. Any advice would be appreciated. The color vibrancy is incredible. I hope to salvage them…

    • I purchased this plant three years ago at the end of the season so wasn’t sure what to expect; it has become one of the top performers in my full-sun garden! It’s not a diva and is so easy to care for. It doesn’t wilt, it doesn’t get powdery mildew, it requires almost zero effort on my part. Love it and will be trying additional varieties of taller phlox from Proven Winners.

    • This phlox is beautiful! I put mine in morning sun and afternoon shade since we are hot and dry. It grew very well, I am pleased with it.

    • Phlox has never grown well for me. I ordered 1 plant to try! Grew fast, tall and such vibrant colors! Wish I had ordered more!
