They make an impressive color impact planted en masse. 

Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox is a neat and compact perennial that produces sturdy branches from a central base point. Bred for high mildew resistance, once established they are very dependable garden performers. In addition to their vibrant color, their light fragrance attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox grows 28” in height with up to a 24-36” spread. 

Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox Care

Plant Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight and partial afternoon shade. Space plants to allow for plenty of air circulation around each plant. Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox will benefit from using a slow-release granular formula when initially planted. When the first flowers fade, apply a balanced, diluted, liquid fertilizer to encourage a second flush of blooms. Incorporating generous amounts of organic matter into the soil, particularly if the soil is lean or sandy, delivers essential nutrients slowly to the roots. Try using peat moss, garden compost, or well-rotted manure.

Water Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox regularly, ideally in the morning, maintaining moist but not soggy soil. Avoid overhead watering by using drip irrigation or hand watering at the base of the plant to avoid splashing water on the leaves. Deadhead terminal blooms to encourage longer flowering. New flower buds will appear along the stem for a second flush, and they will continue to flower, often up until fall. Divide Volcano Ruby Garden Phlox plants after 3 years. 

Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox Spacing

Plant Volcano® Ruby Garden Phlox in garden areas that long to be filled with vibrant pops of color with other summer-flowering favorites. They are lovely in native plant gardens, in meadows, and naturalized areas. When planted en masse, space plants 24 inches or more on center, to allow adequate airflow and sunlight to reach all sides of the plant.

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.
