Prairie phlox (phlox pilosa) is a short (2ft) native phlox for sunny open gardens. Beautiful pink flowers in late spring. Attractive to pollinators.
These are one year old plants but prairie phlox is slow growing and really doesn’t begin to shine till it’s third year. Extra care will be needed to make sure they don’t get overtaken by neighboring plants and weeds. They are also enjoyed by deer and bunnies and will need some protection.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
