Volcano® Plum With White Eye Garden Phlox features an abundance of gorgeous soft purple flowers that stay upright. The Volcano® series of garden phlox was bred for compact growth, avoiding the need for staking even when in full bloom. These plants are perfect for growing in a small garden or in containers on a patio or deck. Although this hybrid was primarily selected for height and spread, it retains the spicy fragrance that phlox is known for. 

Volcano® garden phlox is highly resistant to mildew diseases and not choosy about the amount of sun it gets. It will bloom well in full to part sun. This shorter-growing phlox is perfect for the front of a garden bed, adding a hit of color late in the summer. It also works well in a planter filled with brightly colored foliage plants like sweet potato vine and coleus for a stunning display. It blends effortlessly with other pastels and makes a wonderful contrast to lime and bright yellows for a more eclectic look.  

Volcano® Plum With White Eye Garden Phlox Care

Phlox is not fussy about soil texture; clay, loam, and sandy locations are fine as long as the drainage is excellent throughout the year. Full sun is the best location for planting, although phlox will grow fine in bright shade. Fertilize phlox annually in late spring with organic compost, diluted liquid seaweed, or fish emulsion to provide plenty of nutrients throughout the growing season. Mulching with organic material like shredded leaves, arborist chips, and compost helps suppress annual weeds while slowly enriching the soil and improving moisture retention. 

As growth starts in the spring, pinching out the first flower buds will encourage even more budding later in the summer and will help the plant remain dense. Deadheading and staking are not required for Volcano®, making it a great low-maintenance choice for novice gardeners as well as experienced gardeners. Seasonal dividing of Volcano® phlox will multiply your plant stock and reinvigorate growth.

Volcano® Plum With White Eye Garden Phlox Spacing

Volcano® Plum With White Eye Garden Phlox has a sturdy height of 30 inches and a spread of up to 24 inches. It is best planted 18-20 inches from other plants in the garden. Grow Volcano® phlox in a pot with at least a 12-inch diameter if potting it alone.

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.
