Tall Annual Phlox
Tall Annual Phlox
Sun Or Shade
Tall phlox (Phlox paniculata) is a flowering plant commonly grown in gardens and landscapes. It is known for its tall, upright growth habit, which can reach heights of up to 4 feet (1.2 meters) or more.
The plant produces clusters of fragrant, colorful flowers and blooms ranging from pink, purple, white, and red. The flowers are held on long stems that rise above the foliage, creating a showy display.
Tall phlox prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is generally easy to grow and maintain but may require staking to keep tall stems upright in windy conditions. It also benefits from regular watering during dry periods and occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer.
Tall phlox is famous for cottage gardens, borders, and cut flower arrangements. It attracts pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden, making it an excellent choice for wildlife enthusiasts.
