|What is more beautiful - a rainbow or Phlox?|
WORKING GARDENER'S JOURNAL* It's time for the Phlox festival! This wonderful native plant is a joy for working gardeners, as it gives us a shout from Mother Nature, as if she is saying," Hey, I ain't done yet!"
Please don't let water puddle up with Phlox; they can suffer from mildew and fungi, along with mites looking for food and moisture.
Believe it or not, Phlox don't need a lot of fert this time of year, better to give them a good dose in the spring.
Have you seen hummingbirds feeding from your Phlox? Turns out that Phlox has a high nectar count, enabling the H-birds to beef up for their winter trip down south.
