12-16” tall x 16-18” wide. ‘Forever Pink’ Phlox fills the gap between spring-blooming creeping phlox and summer-blooming species, showering the garden with color. Plant in masses at the front or middle of perennial gardens for a stunning display. Flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and make long-lasting cut flowers. ‘Forever Pink’ blooms best in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Flowers are sterile, so you will not have to weed seedlings out of the garden. Plants prefer a moist, well-drained soil, but are drought tolerant once established. To encourage repeat blooming, remove the spent flowers after the initial bloom. Cut plants back to the evergreen basal foliage (lowest-to-the-ground leaves) in autumn or early-spring before new growth emerges. A hard-working perennial that delivers a superior 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.
