Description

Largeleaf Phlox is also known as the garden phlox.

Largeleaf Phlox amplifolia is a perennial plant that makes an excellent garden flower. This article will help you learn about the best time to plant it and how to choose the best location in your yard or garden.

In addition, you’ll find information on what soil type works best for growing and its ideal sowing time and planting time frame.

 Largeleaf Phlox What is this beautiful plant exactly

You might know this plant by another name: Garden phlox. That’s because its lovely blue and white flowers do a great job of helping it fit into many types of flowerbeds. It comes in multiple colors, so that you can plant it in mixed groups. When planting, you want it in a sunny area with well-drained soil and nutrients, such as compost or rotted manure.

 They prefer well-drained soil and full sun.

 This plant is an excellent choice for borders and shrubberies when planted in a garden. In addition, it makes a beautiful houseplant—it prefers to be kept indoors during its flowering period, but afterward, it does pretty well outdoors. You can also purchase small plants already producing buds; these are generally used as cut flowers for indoor decoration or arrangements. If you don’t have access to live plants, you can use dried leaves of all varieties of this plant to make sachets or even teas. 

  And don’t forget about your bees! Bees love it not only because of its sweet scent but also because it is full of natural nectar.

 Plant Care

  Plant yours in rich, well-drained soil and sun to ensure a strong start after planting; water deeply until water penetrates at least six inches into the soil. Fertilize three times a year with general fertilizer applied according to package directions. 

  Throughout summer, weed regularly and water occasionally when rain is lacking. In late fall or early spring—when new growth has emerged but is still tiny—deadhead spent blooms by cutting them back to two inches above ground level. 

  After they’ve finished blooming in fall, cut all stems down to just above ground level using an electric hedge trimmer or sharpened spade.

 Sow Seeds Indoors

  After growing plants for two or three weeks, thin them out, leaving 8-10 inches between them. That will help them grow faster and become more sturdy. Each plant can thrive on less when removing some of its water and nutrients competition.
