phlox belongs in every garden. He is a very undemanding plantthat can spark a true sea of flowers. Whether in the shade or in the sun, the phlox thrives almost everywhere.
Seeds scatter themselves
And in a variety of colors. If you just let it grow, it usually blooms from June / July. Then it forms seeds and sprinkles itself. If you do not want this and if you want to enjoy the beautiful flowers well into the autumn, you should cut the flowers off when they start to fade. This causes the phlox to use its power to create new flowers, which can result in more leaf axils.
Splendid flowering until October
This ensures that you often have beautiful phlox into October, while others are hardly recognizable as such. Another advantage: if you cut in time, the phlox does not form seeds and cannot sow itself. Because the young plants that emerge in this way push each other over time.
