Testimonials for Volcano phlox
I would definitely recommend this plant. It grows really fast and the blooms are bright and pretty. It’s easy to grow and blooms a long time!

I love the compact size and shape of these Volcano phlox. They were easy to grow and I particularly like the purple with white eye variety. I would rate them as “excellent” against other phlox I’ve grown.
Christy P., Graysville, AL Zone 8
This plant adapted to my clay soil very quickly and has since doubled in size (and I don’t use fertilizers or chemicals). The bloom colors remained strong and vibrant, even though a very hot and humid summer!
Dawn J., Levittown, PA Zone 7
I was highly impressed by the continuous blooming of the Volcano phlox once it started. Visitors to my garden immediately commented on the beauty and fragrance of the blooms. The plants bloomed well into fall until the first very hard killing frost.
Charlie W., Clayville, PA Zone 6-7
A very good plant for borders and under trees. Smaller flowers combine to form large clusters. This does well in full and part sun and has been very easy to maintain and will look good in any landscape design. It’s also non-stop flowering!
Jeffrey B., Pennsaluken, NJ Zone 7
This Volcano phlox is suitably named, as it erupts into bloom and pours forth wonderful colors! It wasn’t bothered by powdery mildew and it looks to be a good spreader with a strong root system. The rain hasn’t spoiled the blooms either. This is a nice addition to the phlox family.

This new family of Volcano™ phlox produces an astonishing number of flowers from December through to March. Volcano phlox are strong, sturdy and exceptionally tolerant of the powdery mildew which plagues most other phlox varieties.
After the first massive flush of flowers, you can cut back the old stems by a quarter and they will again provide a mass of new blooms.
WINNER - "Oklahoma Proven" is a plant promotion program coordinated by faculty in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at Oklahoma State University. They have named Garden Phlox, Volcano series as... Perennial for 2015
They go on to say....Phlox paniculata Volcano® series is more compact, fragrant, and powdery mildew tolerant than other garden phlox types. Plants develop sturdy stems, 24-28” tall, with deep green leaves and an abundance of large flowers that appear from June to September if plants are cut back after initial bloom. Flower colours range from red, pink, ruby, white, lavender, and purple; flowers may also have eyes of pink, red, or white or are bicoloured such as with Lilac Splash. It doesn’t mind most soils, but needs well drained soil; irrigate with soaker or drip irrigation to keep foliage dry. Full sun is the best exposure for Volcano phlox, but it will grow in part shade; too much shade and poor air circulation increases chances of mildew developing, though it still does not seem to inhibit flowering. Once established, phlox is very adaptable. It is grown as an accent, in groups, or masses. It also works well in native plant gardens, wild gardens, meadows, naturalized areas, perennial borders, and cottage style gardens. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the colourful, fragrant flowers.
