Why plant Audubon® Native Garden Phlox?

If you’d like to attract more butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, then planting a patch of Garden Phlox is a great place to start. This beloved native Spirit depends on these specialized pollinators to fertilize its flowers, as other insects’ tongues are too short to do the job properly. And what magnificent flowers they are! Generous, domed clusters of fragrant, magenta-pink to white blossoms make Garden Phlox a popular choice in gardens of all types. Include it in a perennial border, cottage garden, children’s garden, or native planting for weeks of wonderful wildlife-watching each summer.

Before it was invited into our gardens and became “Garden Phlox,” this handsome perennial existed as a wild native Spirit, growing in open woodlands and along creek sides throughout much of the eastern United States. After making itself at home in our gardens, it then jumped the fence and made its way back into wild spaces where populations hadn’t existed before! Garden Phlox has been extensively hybridized and tinkered with by plant breeders over the years to create new forms with shocking flower colors, variegated foliage, and squatty habits. What we offer here is the pure, unadulterated wild form.

How to use Audubon® Native Garden Phlox in the landscape?

Plant some extra Garden Phlox so you’ll have plenty for bouquets! The long stems and bold flower clusters make it perfect for cutting. Nothing gives your guests a warmer welcome than flowers on the table.

Audubon® Native Plants & Trees

Audubon is devoted to protecting birds and the places they need, while Bower & Branch is devoted to the growth of true native trees and plants–no cultivars or hybrids. Together, we strive to unite communities in conservation and inspire individuals to cultivate a better world for birds starting in their own backyards, balconies, or patios. By guiding and recommending trees and plants truly native and beneficial to your region, we can really start to make a difference.

What is the definition of Native?

“In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money.” – The National Audubon Society

How To Plant Audubon® Native Garden Phlox

Garden Phlox is easy to grow, and even novice gardeners will have success with it. Give it a spot in full sun for the most flower production. Light shade in the afternoon is a good idea in hot-summer regions. The soil should be rich and organic, yet drain well. Provide regular water, as Garden Phlox is not particularly drought tolerant. Feed with Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer in the spring. Garden Phlox will die back to the ground after a few frosts in the fall, and it may be cut back then to make way for new growth in spring.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Each fall, just before winter sets in clean up the previous years foliage and compost it. Be sure your perennials are mulched well for winter protection. Two inches of an organic mulch will do the job. Consider leaving the plant debris in place through the winter and doing your clean up on the weather warms in the spring. While it doesn't make things neat and tidy, the debris provides overwintering protection for insects, their eggs and pupae including our native Viceroy butterfly.

How Does Shipping Work?

Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.
