How to Grow Phlox
Phlox comes in two forms – there is Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata), which is an upright flower that grows to about three feet. Creeping Phlox (Phlox subulata), is a spring groundcover that stays green for most of the year. Both are easy-to-grow perennials that come back reliably every season.
Garden phlox blooms in mid summer and is a great addition to casual cottage garden landscapes, pollinator gardens, and is also at home in the shrub and perennial garden. The Creeping form blooms in mid spring and looks great as an edging plant to gardens, or falling casually over a low wall. Both Garden phlox and Creeping phlox produce fragrant blooms that attract a variety of pollinators, including butterflies and hummingbirds.
Volcano Ruby Tall Garden Phlox
Plant taxonomy classifies this flower as Phlox paniculata 'Barthirtyone.' But the cultivar name, 'Barthirtyone' is seldom used. The flower is more often referred to by the catchier names, "Ruby" or "Volcano Ruby" (it is part of the Volcano series).
Tall garden phlox is categorized as an herbaceous perennial flower.

You’ll need to divide them every two to three years to keep them thriving.
Powdery mildew is probably this plant’s biggest enemy it springs up when the weather is hot and humid, making garden phlox a challenge to grow in some regions, such as Southern climates. But developers have introduced many new varieties that are resistant to powdery mildew, and you can help prevent it from attacking your plants by spacing them far enough apart to ensure good air circulation (about one to two feet, for most types). They’ll also benefit from being watered with soaker hoses or drip irrigation, rather than sprinklers or hoses that get their foliage wet.
