Plant Information

24-28" tall x 15-18" wide. ‘Red Super’ phlox is a cottage garden flower that brightens up every garden border and cutting garden. Plants are highly mildew resistant and easy care. ‘Red Super’ is long-blooming variety that bursts into flower during mid-summer and continues through early fall. Bright fuchsia flowers have dark red centers that lure bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to sip from the blooms. Pairs well with rudbeckias and other selected natives. Huge flowerheads on tall, strong stems make this a strong performer in the middle or back of gardens and landscape beds. Plant in full sun in moist, well-drained soils. Fast-growing for outstanding first year performance.

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.

              They arrived last fall and I planted them immediately. I anxiously awaited watching them grow this spring. But they have done nothing. I'm very disappointed.

                  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).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:
