Blue Phlox (Phlox Drummondii Nana Compacta Beauty Blue) Annual, 25 seeds per package.

Grow annuals in any fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.

Cut back all tall herbaceous species to the ground in autumn. Dead-head to prolong flowering.

Start this little versatile annual blue Phlox (looks more violet than blue) from seeds! Grow blue Phlox flowers in beds, at the front of borders, and intermix them with other flowers in informal plantings and cottage gardens.

Phlox plants are wonderful in containers and when the flowers are cut, they maintain well in water and smell so pretty. The genus Phlox itself is a fascinating one that grows from relatively high altitudes in the mountains to the low lands in the prairies and the plains. Probably best known of all Phlox is the annual Phlox Drummondii which grows wild through the gulf states. It is commonly known as annual Phlox or Drummond's Phlox. The name Phlox comes from the Greek word meaning "flame." The name Phlox is certainly appropriate for these brilliant, bright blue blooms that nearly glow with color!

How To Grow Phlox From Seed: Plant annual Phlox seeds directly outdoors into prepared soil in the late fall or spring. After distributing the flower seed evenly, rake into loosened topsoil to ensure good seed contact with the soil. For earlier blooms, sow this blue Phlox seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before setting out. As with all annual flowers, it is essential that the Phlox Drummondii plant is allowed to re-seed for an abundant display the following year.
