Plant Information

This wonderful, short annual phlox species was discovered in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area by Thomas Drummond, an English plant explorer in 1835. It occurs in nature in reds, pinks and whites, but seed available for today’s meadows is usually all red. The native species has been hybridized heavily into a rainbow of various annual phlox colors. (Not to be confused with creeping phlox, a perennial species.) Drummond phlox today is established along sandy roadsides all the way from Canada into central Florida. A great meadow plant.

    Best Uses

    • With Bluebonnets

    Comments about American Meadows Drummond Phlox Seeds:

    I use Texas natives in the front yard and D.Phlox looks wonderful wiht bluebonnets and with low spreading plants like black-foot daisy and calyophus (sun drops). They appear to seed pretty readily and they last longer than bluebonnets and will pop up through out the summer. Great in areas when you don't want really tall massing natives, like mexican hat or blanket flower. I'm planing on purchasing more !

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
