Pruning: Light pruning or deadheading of spent blooms can encourage a second flowering and maintain a neat appearance.

Winter Protection: Mulch around the base in late fall to protect the roots from freezing temperatures and to retain soil moisture.


To plant the Flame® Lilac Star Garden Phlox, choose a well-drained area that receives plenty of sunlight. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, set the plant in place, and then fill the hole with soil. Water thoroughly after planting. Space each plant about 16-20 inches apart to ensure adequate air circulation, which will help to prevent mildew. Apply a layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture and regulate temperature.




Regular watering and ample sunlight are key to achieving vibrant, long-lasting blooms. Ensure the plant receives at least 6 hours of sunlight and keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods.
