Re: PHLOX - gift appearance..

Just some osmocote the first year I think, the next year nothing, though there was some leaf mold placed around it. I like my pan Phlox to be more like Franz Schubert, about waist high. This year I finally had a Liatris spicata make it throught the winter, I've never had luck with that plant before. It is positioned next to Franz and the lavender eye of the phlox matched the Liatris flowers perfectly. Very pretty. If the Franz flowers had been up as high as David's I'd have had to have a Liatris ligulastylis next to it and then I'd have to admire the combination from below or from afar. Wouldn't have been as satisfying.

Kitty, what were you using as fertilizer?
