Description

Phlox performs well in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers neutral to alkaline soils. Thrives in gritty, sandy loams. Superior soil drainage is the key to growing this plant well. Good heat and drought tolerance.  Shear back after flowering to promote denser plants.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
