Plant Information

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Red Riding Hood Phlox:

    Beautiful color, true to the photo, blooms non-stop! Interestingly, of the three plants one turned out to be a vibrant purple rather than the deep pink/red. Still pretty, but disappointing. There is also a small issue with powdery mildew, but that seems to be expected with phlox.

    Overall a fantastic plant, profuse bloomer, good grower, and beautiful color. I definitely would recommend!

      Q & A

      Plant With These:

      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).
