GARDEN GIRLS® Collection
Common Name: Tall Garden Phlox
'Uptown Girl' has light pink flowers with a star-shaped dark pink eyes.
Our flagship Phlox paniculata variety, 'Glamour Girl', has been admired for years because of its beautiful floral display. More importantly, 'Glamour Girl' is known for disease resistance, specifically mildew that often plagues Tall Garden Phlox. Now accompanying 'Glamour Girl' are three additional varieties that share the same characteristics, including rebloom. We've put them to the test with our hot, humid Michigan summers and compared to other varieties that turn white with mildew. These varieties proudly display their dark green foliage well into fall.
These perennials are a favorite of gardeners around the world and a staple of North American native gardens. A favorite of pollinators. Phlox is unequaled for its showy blooms over a long period in summer. Though it is one of the most popular perennials available, it does require some maintenance to sustain its health and vigor.
Phlox grows best in rich, moist soil in full sun. It will thrive with fertilizing every other month and consistent moisture levels. Overhead watering should be avoided since some varieties of Phlox are susceptible to powdery mildew. This can be avoided or diminished by providing ample air circulation around the plants and by thinning them out periodically. Deadheading will prolong bloom time and prevent self-seeding.
