Big clusters of fragrant blooms are a fun and vivid grape-purple and white, a very unique color that will cool off the summer landscape. Plant several so you can enjoy these fabulous flowers in the garden as well as in the vase! Phlox loves sun and is very long-lived and easy to grow. A great beginner's plant!

Soil: Well-drained soil is important.
Light: Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South)
Water: Consistent moisture during the first season, but drought tolerant once established. For the longest lasting blooms, avoid letting the plant get stressed while in flower.
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. Do not over-fertilize.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Leave foliage standing in winter, and clean up spent foliage in spring.
Maintenance & pruning: 'Laura' is highly disease resistant and needs no special care.
