Grow Phlox plants in perennial or mixed borders. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in fertile, moist, well drained soil.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Phlox stems may require staking with garden canes to support their tall stems. Deadhead faded phlox flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in spring.
