Nothing beats the appeal of garden phlox plants.
These tall, eye-catching perennials are ideal for sunny borders. In addition,
the large clusters of pink, purple, lavender or white flowers bloom for several
weeks in summer, and make excellent cut flowers. Growing hardy garden phlox is
simple and so is its general care.
Info on Garden Phlox Garden phlox (Phlox
paniculata), also called summer phlox, is a sun-loving perennial with a long
flowering season. Large clusters of flowers, called panicles, sit atop stems
that grow 3 to 4 feet (91 cm. to 1 m.) tall. This native American wildflower
thrives in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 to 8. Growing hardy garden phlox
is a challenge in hot, humid areas because the plant is sensitive to powdery
mildew. Watch for foliage that looks as though it has been dusted with talcum
powder, and pinch off the affected leaves. In severe cases, treat the plants
with fungicide. You may be able to avoid powdery mildew by choosing varieties
labeled as “mildew resistant.”
GROWING PHLOX FROM SEED
Phlox germinates and develops quickly, so in most cases you’re
best off direct-sowing your seeds…but if spring comes late to your
neighborhood, start them indoors in a sunny window. Growing lights and heat
mats always help when growing phlox from seed.

***Note: It is normal for tropical seed germination to be sporadic
from as little as 30 days to 6 months or more- so patience is required. Buyers
should do their own research for plant uses if needed.
BE PREPARED – Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate – much
patience and time may be required – please don’t be wondering why the seeds
have not germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months
will be needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience
in growing. We provide germination guidance and recommend that you do some
research before ordering if you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is
supposed to be fun. Sometimes it is successful and sometimes not- this is the
way it is with gardening. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be
responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate
conditions. We will always send you viable seeds
Seed is a
live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper
planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use
of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and
reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of
the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer’s
responsibility and risk.
