PHLOX 'Red Riding Hood'

Tall Garden Phlox

Vivid clusters of fragrant, cherry-red flowers sit atop strong-stemmed plants from mid thru late summer. 'Red Riding Hood' is a compact variety which attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. It makes a tremendous color statement in the garden.

Phlox paniculata provide unsurpassed flowering in summer, clear crisp colors and fragrant flowers in profusion. Mildew can be a problem, but is easily controlled with a simple spray program. Preferring moist, humus-rich soil, Phlox can be divided every 3 - 5 years in spring or fall. Self sows prolifically but colors may not grow true to parent plant. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off after bloom, just above foliage to encourage more blooms. Snip off any winter-damaged shoots in spring. To allow for good air circulation, snip out all but 4 - 6 stems in mature clump.

This plant is considered deer resistant.

We ship larger plants than most leading mailorder nurseries. Ours are two year old plants in 5 1/4" containers.

Very pretty red but not quite as prolic on flowering as some of the others I have. Very fragrant, though!

Phlox grow well in my area of Kansas. If not deadheaded, these will reseed and naturalize quickly. Very drought tolerant. No trouble to grow or maintain.
