Tall Phlox is the Tallest Phlox in Cultivation
PLEASE NOTE- COLORS WILL RANGE FROM BLUE TO PURPLE AND SOMETIMES PINK. It IS THE WAY WILD PHLOX GROWS, AND THE COLOR DEPENDS ON THE NUTRIENTS IN THE SOIL
Tall Phlox offers an array of colors during the summer months. This plant can bloom for six weeks or longer. Some start to bloom in mid-summer, while others do not begin until late in August. Colors include white, red, purple, lavender, rose, and pink. Some are even a blend of two colors with a center of another color. The flowers have five lobes and grow in clumps at the top of the plant. The plants generally get from 2 to 4 feet tall, growing upright on a stiff stem. Leaves are deep green and are lance-shaped. When the stems on the plant are approximately six inches tall, pinch off all but five or six and the tips of these stems. It will allow the plant to grow more prominent clusters of blooms.
Tall Phlox is a Summer Garden Mainstay with Beautiful Blooms from July through September.
Too much shade will prevent the plants from producing as many blooms, and the quality of the flowers will suffer. They should not be grown under trees or near large hedges. Competition for nutrients and moisture from the soil can cause a problem for Tall Phlox. These plants will do well when planted in areas with good drainage and watered regularly. It is best to moisten the soil around the Tall Phlox rather than the plant itself. It helps to prevent disease. Fertilizer is recommended in the spring as new growth appears. Mulch will help to keep the soil around the plant fresh and helps to retain moisture. Tall Phlox will grow from the District of Columbia to the panhandle of Florida. When the blooms start to fade, removing the flowers will help keep blooms the color was initially chosen. It is sometimes possible to get the Tall Phlox to bloom twice by fertilizing again after the first blooms are gone.

There is also some tall phlox which has variegated foliage for the genuinely adventurous gardener. The flower heads form a cluster at the top of the plant stem, which has dozens of tiny individual five-petaled flowers. They can be cut for flower arrangements indoors if desired. The fragrance of the flower ranges from sweet to spicy depending upon the variety you choose. The flowers can also be deadheaded to encourage more blooms from the plant. If you allow the flower blooms to pollinate by bees, butterflies, or hummingbirds, they will seed. Seeds that drop from the original plant will enable the plant to spread to surrounding areas. The spread area can range from 18-24 inches. With so many colors and a variety of tall Phlox available, no wonder it is a favorite addition to gardeners everywhere.
