Phlox paniculata ‘Blue Paradise’, or more commonly known as Blue Paradise Garden Phlox, features tall, fragrant, showy flowers! It’s a hardy, herbaceous, native perennial that has billowing masses of lavender-blue flowers with deep-green stems and foliage. Blue Paradise Garden Phlox provides a long-blooming summer floral show.

This variety of Phlox is an excellent choice for borders, beds, corners, or containers. It grows to a mature height of 30 to 36 inches tall, and can spread to be 15 to 18 inches wide—just right for middle row planting. The Blue Paradise Phlox blooms are great at attracting pollinators like hummingbirds and butterflies. This plant is tolerant of clay soils as well as deer.

Blue Paradise Garden Phlox Care

Blue Paradise has moderate water needs. It prefers moist, nutrient-rich, well-draining soil. This plant can grow in a wide variety of soil types. It easily adapts to soil containing chalk, clay, and loam. This Phlox is not drought tolerant and will need water during dry spells. 

Plant this phlox in an area that gets full sunlight. Blue Paradise prefers full sun for best performance, but also tolerates partial shade. Fertilize in the spring with compost or a balanced fertilizer blend. For pruning this plant, thin out the stems as needed to ensure adequate air circulation between plants. Thinning helps to reduce the risk of powdery mildew. 

Blue Paradise Golden Phlox Spacing

Space your Phlox plants about 20 inches apart and thin out as needed. Each Phlox plant requires adequate air circulation around it, so make sure to give them space. This is an excellent border plant and provides an abundance of stunning blooms from July through September!

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
