'Blue Flame' Phlox delivers gorgeous blue blooms on bushy, compact plants. Very fragrant, each colorful bud starts out a deep shade of indigo and slowly opens to reveal petals of barely-there blue surrouding violet centers. A dwarf variety, 'Blue Flame' is very resistant to powdery mildew and makes a fine choice for containers and small spaces. (Phlox paniculata)

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

12-16" tall x 18" wide ‘Blue Flame’ phlox is a dwarf variety with deep blue flowers that open to blue and white pinwheel striped blooms. This garden phlox is favored for its resistance to powdery mildew, a disease that plagues other common phlox varieties. Fragrant flowers bloom in mid summer in clusters on top of sturdy stems, attracting butterflies by the hundreds. Hummingbirds and other pollinators flock to the flowers, as well. Plant ‘Blue Flame’ in perennial gardens, landscape beds, and containers for long-lasting, easy-care color. It’s a compact grower, and an excellent choice for small space gardens. Grow in moist, well-drained soils in full sun. Deadhead to encourage continued blooming. Somewhat deer resistant and pretty as a cut 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.
