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).

Plant Information

26-30" tall x 20-24" wide. ‘Goliath’ phlox is a giant, both in size and its colorful impact on the garden. This tall garden phlox variety has fragrant lavender-purple flowers with white eyes in cone-shaped clusters on top of sturdy stems. Individual plants grow up to 2 ½ - 3’ tall. They’re excellent cut flowers and pair well in the garden with other phlox and native summer-blooming perennials. Plant with ‘David’ phlox for a knockout show. ‘Goliath’ is resistant to powdery mildew. Deer, for the most part, also leave it alone. Blooms in midsummer. Grow in moist, well-drained soil. Butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and other pollinators love ‘Goliath’ phlox, so include it in any pollinator garden plans. Sure to become a favorite summer flower.

Garden Phlox, also called Tall Phlox (or just Phlox), is a longtime favorite perennial grown in gardens throughout the country. A tall plant for the back of the border, it's exceptionally fragrant and attractive to pollinators, including butterflies and hummingbirds. Blooming in mid summer, Phlox flowers are long lasting and form on exceptionally strong stems - which makes them great for cutting and placing in a vase, as well as a reliable choice for weather-prone beds. A North American native, many modern varieties of phlox have been bred to resist powdery mildew. With that detail out of the way, they've claimed their status as one of the most long-lived color makers in today's garden.
