Annual Phlox drummondii
Annual Phlox : TN Nursery presents the annual Phlox drummondii, a beautiful, fragrant, and deer-resistant flower. The North American native species flourish throughout most of the contiguous United States.
Don't let the name confuse you–annual phlox is a self-seeding perennial that will make a return year after year.
On average, garden phlox flowers grow to just under three feet high, making them a beautiful companion in front of shrubs to add a splash of vibrant color. Annual phlox also makes a terrific addition to a rock garden. As if that's not enough, they are showstoppers as cut flowers, prized for bridal bouquets and in tabletop vases.
The plants form in just-right-sized clumps and produce wide, sturdy stems with lovely green leaves.
Annual Phlox drummondii Gives You a Kaleidoscope of Color.
Annual phlox has colorful flowers in a rainbow of shades. Lovely, five-petal phlox flowers can be white, blue, or lavender-to-pink in range. Indeed, the riotous colors of the annual Phlox drummondii will add a whimsical element of surprise everywhere you plant them. Garden phlox flowers grow on stems with bright, five-petaled blooms that blossom from April to June in most American growing zones.
Besides the showstopping colors, phlox flowers are pleasingly fragrant and attract butterflies, bees, and beneficial garden insects, all excellent for pollination and a healthy ecosystem.
Annual phlox resists deer and is easy to care for
While deer are lovely to watch, they can wreak havoc on a garden. So, what is your solution? Plant deer-resistant Phlox drummondii. Deer have a keen, finely tuned sense of smell, and they tend to avoid any scent that offends their sensitive noses. Unlike pollinator species that love the smell, deer do not seem to prefer the fragrance of garden phlox. So, while they are not "deer-proof," phlox tend to be "deer-resistant."
Phlox drummondii grows eagerly in a wide range of light exposures, including full sun, shade, and partially shaded spots. They grow in all of North America's most common soil types and resist diseases like powdery mildew. Annual phlox plants are easy to care for, requiring only water, occasional fertilizing and thinning, and some mulch to help retain moisture and dead heading of your spent blossoms.

I love my plants and came so well packaged. Exactly what I have in mind.
The plant I received is healthy and I cannot wait for the flowers to bloom.
Received the plants in very good condition. They were sealed very well in a bag. Upon talking them out of the bag, I noticed the plants still had some spent blooms on them. I immediately planted them the day they came. They been watered as well. I can't wait to see how they grow.
