Soil: Well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Plants prefer soil with a slightly acid to neutral pH.
Light: Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South)
Water: Medium.
Spacing: 15 - 18 inches
Fertilizing: A general purpose slow-acting granular fertilizer worked into the soil around the plants in the spring is sufficient for phlox for the season.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Leave foliage standing in winter, and clean up spent foliage in spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Cut back stems after flowering by 1/2. This will maintain dense growth and attractive habit for the summer months. This will also encourage some fall rebloom. Cut out any brown stems.
