The Story

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. Glamour Girl hails from Michigan. It was bred there by Kevin Hurd of Walters Gardens in 2007 and made its debut in 2013. Glamour Girl has been warmly received; in a Garden Phlox trial program at the Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware, it won rave reviews.

The Details

Plant some extra Glamour Girl 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.

How to Grow

Glamour Girl 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. Glamour Girl 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.
