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
18-24” tall x 12-18” wide. Garden Phlox provide much-needed color during the heat of summer. A member of the Candy Store® series of garden phlox, Coral Crème Drop™ Phlox displays the superior disease resistance for which this series is prized. Compact growth and dense branching yield an abundance of blooms. Phlox are quintessential to the perennial border and summer workhorses among cottage plantings and meadows. Plant in rich, well-drained soils and water regularly in the first growing season to establish a deep root system. As with all phlox, it is best to avoid overhead watering. Plants benefit from deadheading to prolong flowering and can be cut back by one-half in late spring or/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Divided phlox every 3-5 years in spring or fall as needed.
