Pure phlox "Autumn Joy". Fresh out of the ground.

Are the colours of this phlox "Autumn Joy" all the same? No way! The purple/lilac shades of each flower are unique. You won't be able to take your eyes off this fragrant phlox. The phlox, from the Greek word meaning "flame", grows very tall: 80 -90 cm. The flowers are enormous, and bees and butterflies love them. You will receive the phlox "Autumn Joy" as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. The phlox starts flowering in the summer. This will continue for months. This unique phlox can be planted in flower pots or separately around the garden, in half or full sun. After planting, water the phlox regularly. They will take root better this way.

Planting

Phlox Mixed are perennials that grow best in the ground. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, moist soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in compost and granulated cow manure. Plant the Phlox Mixed at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Phlox Mixed grows and blooms well in the sun or partial shade.

Phlox Mixed make an excellent combination plant

The stunning Phlox Mixed are eye-catchers in the flower border and in flower beds. The hearty flower spikes have long, sturdy stems. Plant them in the border along with Monarda 'Mohawk' and Leucanthemum 'Wirral Supreme'. Phlox also combines beautifully with roses. These plants are an excellent choice if you are planning a beautiful colourful border!

Care

Phlox Mixed are easy-to-grow perennials that can remain in the same spot for several years. Be sure to prevent the soil around the roots from drying out. Dry soil is not well tolerated. Phlox Mixed grow well in moist soil but can survive in regular garden soil. Deadhead to prolong the flowering season. In autumn cut the stems down to the base and mulch with compost or well-rotted manure in early spring. Cover the plants with a layer of fallen leaves. In spring, you will soon see new shoots appearing above the ground.

Phlox Mixed need to be trimmed

In spring, trim the Phlox Mixed back by a third to promote a better flowering in July.
