White Flame® Dwarf Garden Phlox offers all of the flower power of its bigger cousins, but in a compact, manageable size. In mid-to-late summer, pure white panicles of star-shaped blossoms top the strong 12-18” stems, attracting butterflies, bees, and moths. The deep green lanceolate foliage of White Flame® provides a backdrop for this native stunner, and shows strong mildew resistance. Pure white flowers on tall stems make beautiful cut flowers, and deadheading will encourage more blooming. An excellent option for small gardens and tight spaces, or anywhere you’d like to add a bright spot in a sunny garden! (Phlox paniculata)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

(12-18” tall x 12-18” wide) White Flame® Dwarf Garden Phlox emerges fairly early in the spring garden with bushy, deep green lanceolate foliage. In mid-summer, panicles of tubular white flowers top this sun-loving native perennial. Bred for its compact size and increased mildew resistance, White Flame® Dwarf Garden Phlox is no less stunning in the garden than phlox twice its size. Those beautiful native flowers act as magnets for pollinators and allow gardeners with smaller gardens to enjoy traditional phlox abundance without the staking – or size! Plant White Flame® Dwarf Garden Phlox in a sunny position in moisture retentive but well-draining soils near the front of a garden bed. Phlox are heavy feeders and appreciate rich soil and occasional fertilizing. White Flame® Dwarf Garden Phlox can be planted in a part-sun location, but blooming will be reduced. When flower panicles fade, swiftly remove them to encourage the plant to continue producing blossoms, and cut the entire plant back in the late autumn or early spring to prepare for next year’s show.
