Phlox drummondii. Widely adaptable, Phlox may be sown outdoors after the last frost date but is best started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting out after all danger of frost has passed. Cover seeds completely, as darkness aids germination. Use individual peat pots or seed-starting cells to avoid root disturbance. Provide even moisture and strong light. Harden off the plants by gradually acclimating them to the outdoors over 1 to 2 weeks before transplanting out. Both heat and drought tolerant, it requires constant, even moisture for optimum flower production. Mulch to deter weeds and retain ground moisture. Once Phlox starts to bloom, it is free-flowering until the first frost. Phlox is terrific in display bed borders, window boxes and rock gardens. Summer-fall flowering. Height: 8".
