Why plant Coral FLAME™ Garden Phlox?

Wow! Coral Flame™ Phlox puts some zest in your landscape. This high-powered Spirit turns up the volume with its intense, over-the-top blossoms. The blooms are such a blazing coral-red color, you can see them from a football field away! The plant will grab your attention, even though it doesn’t take up much room—Coral Flame™ is a pint-sized version of Garden Phlox. While many old-fashioned varieties grow tall and floppy, this modern take stays compact and picture-perfect. Plant it at the front of your border or use it as a portable color spot in a container. It’s wonderful anyplace you could use some zing!

A cherished native Spirit, Garden Phlox (as this species is known) has a long history in this country in both natural and manmade landscapes. It’s found in the wild all over the eastern United States, preferring somewhat moist ground in open woodlands and river edges. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and all sorts of other pollinators flock to it for its sweet nectar. The Flame™ Series was actually developed in the Netherlands by Bartels Breeding. Nurseryman Gosen Bartels bred this line to be shorter than ordinary Garden Phlox and suitable for containers. He introduced Coral Flame™ in 2010.

How to use Coral FLAME™ Garden Phlox in the landscape?

Although Coral Flame™ Phlox is designed to be much more compact than the typical Garden Phlox your grandma grew, its stems are still long enough for cutting. Coral Flame™ makes a sweet addition to fresh bouquets for the table. Bring the beauty of the garden indoors!

How To Plant Coral FLAME™ Garden Phlox

Coral Flame™ 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.

How To Water

Provide regular water, as Garden Phlox is not particularly drought tolerant. Water deeply and consistently during the first growing season.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

To prolong the blooming period, remove spent blooms. Coral Flame™ 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.
