Growing phlox - varieties and types, planting and care
FLOXES: LANDING AND CARE
BUT NON-ELIMINABILITY OF THIS CULTURE IS FORBIDDEN-WITHOUT NON-CARE OF FLOXES DECUGLY DEGRADIATE. THEREFORE, IF YOU WANT TO PROVIDE THE LARGE FLOWERING AND DURABILITY OF THIS, PLEASE, THE MOST PERSONAL GARDEN COLORS, MAKE A COMFORT OF A CONDITION OF CONDITIONS
To provide floxes with comfortable conditions of existence in fat, we must remember where they come from. In the Old World, phlox paniculata (Phlox paniculata), like many other plants, came from North America. There, in the wild, it grows on moist soils in the river valleys, in the shallow peninsula on the fringes of deciduous forests. It is these conditions that will be optimal for phlox and in the garden,
By the way, you will not see phlox on old Dutch still life just because they were not known in Europe then.
In the middle of the 17th century, a well-known English naturalist, gardener and botanist, as they used to say, “plant hunter” John Tradescant the Younger, brought them from an expedition to Virginia.
And only two centuries later the phlox spread in the gardens.
Secrets of choice
So, the secret is burrowing - the choice of landing site. It is believed that phlox grow well in the sun and in partial shade. So it is true, only in the latter case, the flowering will not be as magnificent as in the sun, and the stems will stretch ugly. Therefore, plant them where possible in an open area. This rule does not apply to dark varieties and those that burn out in the sun: they require light shading in the afternoon hours.
The place where you plan to land phloxes, despite the fact that this is a moisture-loving culture, should not be flooded with melt and storm water. That is, it is necessary to provide for their removal by making shallow drainage grooves along the landings. Over time, as phloxes begin to develop, and their roots grow upward, you will naturally form a raised bed, which will not be afraid of any flooding - neither in spring nor during heavy rains.
Phloxes are usually located in large arrays - flowering in this case gives an amazing effect. But it is necessary to plant nearby varieties that bloom at the same time, picking them in height. And - adhere to a linear fit, in one row, for example along the tracks.
With this version of accommodation phloxes are less sick, because they are better ventilated. With excessive crowding, it will be difficult to fight outbreaks of disease.
The question of which type of planting is better, solitary or mixed, in the case of phloxes, is quite controversial. Exposure to diseases often leads to the fact that the lower parts of the stems are covered with dead leaves, which does not add to their beauty. Imagine such a sick bush somewhere on the lawn - the sight is not the best. Therefore, the decorative phlox is better secure by joint plantings with plants that will cover their ugly "legs". And I’m practicing a wonderful option for my garden - along the path in the front row there is a long-standing undersized (40 cm tall) Italian aster, which is decorative throughout the season. Phlox sit in the second tier. The height of the aster bushes allows guaranteed to close their "legs" for the whole summer. By the beginning of autumn, when the aster blooms and is completely covered with chamomile dark pink flowers, the phloxes will already fade and be cut off. Thus, the mise-en-scene in this place will change without affecting the general decorativeness of the garden.
A new delicacy brought into the garden should not be immediately planted in a permanent place. We must keep it somewhere for a year, watch it, see how tall the bush grows in fact, whether the color corresponds to the declared variety, how much the phlox is susceptible to diseases, etc. And only then can it be determined with a permanent residence permit.
Secrets of planting phlox
As already said, phloxes are lovers of fertile soils with a neutral reaction. Therefore, do not expect good results when they are planted in heavy clay soils, as well as in sandy loam, which poorly retain moisture.
For excellent growth of phloxes, a well-cultivated garden land is required, on the virgin soil among the weeds, they will grow, and even less will bloom. It follows that the soil must be specially prepared for them: add acidified clay (dolomite flour, slaked lime) to acidic loams, and clay to sandy loams. In both cases, a considerable amount of organic matter is required (on 1 m2 - at least two buckets of rotted manure or compost, you can also add vermicompost, sapropel or half a bucket of dry chicken droppings).
All this should be done six months before planting. In each fossa approximately 30 x 30 cm deep and deep on the spade bayonet, add two handfuls of complex mineral fertilizer and a glass of ash.
Do not deepen phlox stocks, the neck should be at 3 - 5 cm below ground level. With a deeper planting, the bush will gain strength for a long time, as it becomes forced to form the upper tier of roots. And with a smaller landing, there is a threat of freezing, especially in a snowy winter.
Secrets of phlox care
With the right fit, phlox care is simple. But here one important agricultural technique is important, with which you can "kill all the birds with one stone", namely mulching. Mulch allows you to preserve soil moisture, the deficiency of which is so susceptible to phlox in the air, therefore, watering is minimized. In addition, it prevents annual weeds from growing, ensuring clean plantings and canceling weeds.
And also mulch serves as a source of additional nutrition, and therefore there is no need for top dressing - phloxes themselves will take everything they need from a fertile substrate.
Plant phloxes can only be in the land, thoroughly cleared of rhizome perennial weeds. The fact is that, for example, the grass grows fond of settling among the roots of phlox, and you can remove it from there only by raking the whole bush. Otherwise, he can poison the life of a horticulturist for many years and, moreover, will later be safely dispersed throughout the site along with the little ones, capturing all new areas.
Mulching - An important technique in the winter preparation of plants. The fact is that phloxes grow their root system sideways and upward, where growth buds of renewal are formed - over time, the bush begins to bulge upward, making it vulnerable to frost. Therefore, to preserve phlox for the winter, they should be covered with a thick layer of compost, which can also be decomposed. Fermentation processes, which continue in such compost until strong frosts are established, generate heat and warm the soil, preventing it from freezing too much. And in the spring, thawed compost becomes a source of additional nutrition. In the spring, when gardeners already have a throat, it saves time and effort, which is usually spent on top dressing.
An important agrotechnical secret in the care of phloxes is the dusting of their woody ash in the early spring immediately after the melting of snow, even before the emerged buds. This allows not only to alkalize the soil, give top dressing with microelements contained in the ashes, but also resist diseases that remain the main problem and headache for the phlox lover.
Secrets of phlox health
Diseases that poison life for all phlox lovers, this is the same Achilles heel, which requires certain measures from us. It is important that these measures be taken immediately. how only found the first signs - sprinkle healing solutions with a run! Moreover, regularly, at designated intervals, because otherwise the disease can spread rapidly and ruin all flowering in the current season.
It is even better to resort to preventive measures: in the spring, before the emergence of sprouts, spray arrays of phlox with copper-containing preparations (copper sulfate, Bordeaux liquid, “Hom”).
Most often phoenix lovers are tormented by powdery mildew, when the leaves of phlox are covered with patches of white plaque, which then becomes brown.
If this misfortune has already happened with your phloxes, then you need to treat bushes with Fundazol, Skor, or powder with colloidal sulfur with a weekly interval. The use of a solution of soda ash (1 tablespoon in 1 liters of water with the addition of 1 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid) has proven itself well.
Here, I think, it's time to discover a people's secret - a method that I have been successfully using according to my grandmother’s testament for more than a year. From May to flowering, phlox should be poured from a watering can “with the head” into the contents of a night pot, dissolved in a ten-liter bucket of water. And do it daily, processing each bush in turn. The results are amazing!
As for pests, thrips and nematodes can cause great damage to the phlox collection. In this case, at the slightest suspicion, noticing some incomprehensible flaws in the stems (curving, falling behind in growth, cracking, etc.), the bush must be excavated and burned without regret, even if it is a novelty of selection and a hard-to-find variety. The place where he grew up, it is necessary several times to treat with appropriate preparations and not to put there phloxes a little bit laid down.
Secrets of division
It is believed that phlox division should be carried out every 5 - 6 years. However, there cannot be a single approach. Different varieties grow in different ways: some quickly, others slowly, and there are those that add one stem per season. Phlox itself: it will tell you when you need to rejuvenate it. Usually, the middle of the bush grows old first, it forms separate young curtains on the periphery. Flowering is getting worse, the flowers are getting smaller - which means it's time to do a rejuvenating procedure. You can dig out the whole bush, throwing the middle, remove all the rotten roots, divide the rest and give the excess to neighbors. Or you can simply separate the sprawling clumps of roots with a shovel, leaving one of them in the old place.
The Secret of the Polyshinel: in order to prolong the flowering of the phlox, it is necessary to cut off the discolored caps of its inflorescences, then it will release new flower-bearing shoots from the sinuses of the upper leaves.
In conclusion, I want to say that far from everywhere the phlox have as many devoted fans as in our country.
These "Russified Americans" have found in us truly their second homeland. But in England, for example, gardeners are completely indifferent to them. Phloxes are extremely rare in British public gardens, you will not see them in private front gardens, they are practically absent at flower shows. We, lovers of phlox, can only guess why.
KINDS OF FLOXES
Phlox is a very plastic genus: their natural habitats are so diverse and sometimes not only not similar, but also completely opposite. Some thriving species can be found in the most geographically remote corners of our planet.
They grow in harsh climates - in Canada and Alaska; and in southern regions where there are no frosty winters; and in the difficult, desert conditions of the steppe; and in the mountains at an altitude of 3500 - 4000 m above sea level.
Of course, phloxes can be found in regions with a moderate, continental climate. There are Spartan phloxes, growing on the poorest stony soils among rocks and stones, and more demanding, preferring rich, nutritious soils with a deep humus layer. There are drought-resistant species, suffering from excessive clamping, and lovers of lowland and wet areas but to the banks of rivers and wet meadows; sun-loving species, abundantly blooming only in open areas, and forest shade-tolerant phloxes, which do not tolerate direct sunlight. The list of their habitats is simply incomprehensible!
According to morphological characteristics, the genus of Phlox can be divided into three main groups - bush, loose and creeping. A separate group is an annual species - Drummond phlox.
Let us consider these groups in more detail and the most common species included in them.
Due to the active selection of flakes, the millstone became the richest species in terms of color diversity
The bush phloxes are subdivided into tall and short.
Tall phlox is a perennial plant with erect and strong stems, woody by mid-summer. Stalks are crowned with panicle caps of inflorescences of the most diverse colors. Tall phlox bloom in summer and early autumn. This group includes panic phlox, spotted phlox, smooth phlox.
Phlox paniculata - This is the most popular species, widespread in our country. He is especially loved both by gardeners and breeders. 1-th homeland - North America, the Mississippi River basin, where it grows in moist meadows, along river banks, among low shrubs, in clearings. He is the founder of most garden forms, hybrids and varieties of the modern assortment. It arose as a result of complex interspecific and intersortal crossbreeding and hybridization and combines numerous varieties.
This is the most beautiful and rich in color diversity, it can be found all kinds of shades, except yellow.
The predominant color is from bright pink, crimson to dense lilac and dark purple. Very clean and fresh pure-white inflorescences, with light shades of light pink and blue shades ('Seagull', 'Alice Freindlich', 'Heaven', 'Zhukovsky').
Breeding has moved far ahead, and now among the phloxes of this group one can find inflorescences with salmon and light red, almost orange color ('Nikolai Schors', 'Spark Gaganova', 'Flame', 'Red Riding Hood', 'Starfire').
The most intriguing and mysterious are blue and blue varieties, which are very popular among gardeners. In fact, their color is dominated by all the mushrooms from light lilac to dark lilac-violet, which they look like in the light of day.
But all their zest is manifested in twilight - in the early morning, on a cloudy day or in the evening garden - just then you can enjoy the unusual blue and blue color of these varieties ('Blue Joy', 'Night', 'Blue Paradise', 'Sandro Botticelli').
Undoubtedly, an interesting and very unusual series of varieties 'Feelings', which arose as a result of natural mutations, occupied their niche in the group and aroused keen interest among fans of phlox. "Filing" is a group of varieties in which the petals do not open at all or half open, resulting in inflorescences similar to hedgehogs densely packed with needles. Such varieties do not lose their decorative effect for 1,5-3 months until flowering and stand for a long time in the cut ('Midnight Feelings ','Pleasant Feelings ','Red Level Feelings ','Natural Feelings').
Also, varieties vary in the size of flowers, the diameter of which can vary from 0,5 to 5, see unusual charm and bright personality give them a variety of rings, asterisks, stains and strokes around the flower's halo. They can be more light, often white shades, or, conversely, bright, darker than the main color for several tops ('Olenka', 'Success', 'Europe', 'Peppermint Twist'). Due to this feature, many varieties seem to be two-color, changing their coloring in different lighting with more variegated and bright to pastel and soft shades. Such intricately painted varieties are best planted in the immediate vicinity of the tracks, next to benches and pavilions, in order to fully reveal their potential and enjoy the coloring.
Also, its unusual appearance attracts variegated varieties of phlox with a white-cream or golden-yellow foliage fringe ('Nora Leigh', 'Frosted Elegance', 'Elizabeth', 'Harlequin', 'Goldmine', 'Darwin's Joyce').
Spotted phlox (Phlox maculata) is part of the tall phlox group. Very similar to the previous species. Distributed in the east of the United States, where it is found along river banks, in meadows, in moist shallow forests in bushes. The leaves of this phlox are narrower, shiny, strewn with small purple touches and dots. It blooms before f. panicled - in June-July. This species was also widely used in breeding new early flowering forms. Spotted phloxes are reconciled with semi shade and moist soils - this does not affect the abundance of flowering and the color of inflorescences. This advantage allows you to most widely use them when placing in the garden. The most popular varieties are 'Schneelawine', 'Delta' and 'Omega' with white flowers. Pink varieties are popular 'Alpha' and 'Rosalinde'. An interesting and most famous is phlox with a two-tone color 'Natasha'. Its white flowers adorn raspberry stripes.
Less well-known undersized species such as Caroline Phlox (Phlox Carolina) and f. adorable (Phlox amoena). They are common in the United States from North Carolina to Florida. At f. charming variegated variety 'Variegata' with a thin white border along the edge of the leaf.
The phlox Caroline fell in love with pink and lilac varieties Bill Baker and Magnificence, as well as snow-white 'Miss Lingard'.
The most common of the undersized phlox subgroup phloex Arends (Ph. x arendsii). This is a hybrid group obtained by crossing the phlox of the sparse and phlox panicle. This species prefers to grow in drier places, among rare trees and shrubs.
Plants 50 tall - 80 cm, with thinner and more flexible stems than previous species, and slightly pubescent small leaves and shoots. Large and slightly loose inflorescences can droop under their own weight. The main difference between this species is the flowering time. Arends hybrids open at the end of May - June. Popular varieties; Miss Mary with bright crimson flowers; Hilda, Emmy, Lilac Star with lilac flowers; All in One with delicate purple flowers and a white border.
Phlox spread out
Homeland phlox spread (Phlox divaricala) - The eastern regions of North America, distributed from the borders of Canada to the coasts of Florida, in the Appalachian mountains it rises to an altitude of 1100 m above sea level. This is the most shade-tolerant and moisture-loving species. In nature, it grows in moist forests and bushes, but can also adapt to drier, poorer, and even rocky soils. It is worth noting that in open and sunny areas, flowering becomes much more plentiful, but less long, as in partial shade. A plant up to 35-40 cm tall, lying stems form loose, sprawling sods, densely covered with leathery, shiny leaves.
In May-June on the plant appear upright flowering shoots with loose inflorescences of charming sky-blue flowers. In favorable conditions, up to 30 flower stems may appear on a single plant. At the time of flowering, completely covered with a blue cloud of inflorescences, f. spread out makes an indelible impression.
This is the only species with real pure blue flowers, which also have an incomparable aroma. But the flowering time f. spread over the salon as if a cloud of sweet, intoxicating aroma is poured, so it is recommended to plant it in shady places along the paths, under the windows of the house, near gazebos, benches and rest places.
It has white-flowered form (Ph. divaricata f. albiflora), pozovotsvetkovoy (Phlox divaricata f. rosea), as well as a number of varieties, the most popular of which is 'Blue perfume'. Another very fragrant variety - 'Clouds of Perfume'. Also interesting varieties 'Chattahoochee' - lilac with a brighter, purple eye and a compact form of growth; 'Violet Queen' - with lilac flowers; 'Blue Dreams' - lavender-blue, with a very growing bush; 'Montrose Tricolor' - a three-color variety with an unusual color of foliage.
Habitat phloox runaway (Phlox stolonifera) - USA, from the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania to Georgia. Prefers moist, shady places. The nature of the growth, the shape of the bush and the growing conditions is similar to the phlox spread. Thin shoots lodge and easily come into contact with the ground, so the plant can occupy large areas.
In early June, upright flower-bearing stems up to 25 cm tall with loose corymbose inflorescences consisting of rounded flowers appear. The flowers are most often lilac, lilac-blue hues with a darker eye in the center, and there is a white-flowered form. During flowering, it is very decorative and forms whole glades, completely covered with a gentle lilac cloud.
It has several varieties, the most famous - 'Blue Ridgewith bright, violet-blue flowers and an active character of growth; his brothers are pink 'Pink Ridge and white 'W Ridge '. Also widely known 'Ariane ' with pure white flowers, 'Purpurea ' и 'Home Fires' with pinkish purple.
This is one of the most popular bands. In the wild, they are found everywhere in North America, from the Yukon and Lake Ontario to the California and Michigan Stages. They occur on the eastern and western slopes of the rocky mountains, on dry soils, in cracks in rocks and on pebbles. These are universal plants for rocky hills, rock gardens, retaining walls. They will rightfully become the main spring decoration and pearl of any stony corner.
Let us briefly mention the most common species in this group: styloid phlox (Phlox subulata), Douglas phlox (Phlox douglasii), dwarf phlox (Phlox nana), bifurcated phlox (Phlox bifida), and snow phlox (Phlox nivalis). You will find more information about these species in the article “Spring Phlox”
Groundcover phlox is an evergreen and unpretentious plant with a height of only 10-15 cm, undemanding to soil conditions and additional watering. Since they have adapted to the harsh growing conditions, their appearance is ascetic - they are low-growing, often bryophytes, forming sods from creeping stems. In late spring, they are so abundantly covered with caps of flowers that sometimes foliage is not visible. Very unusual and colorful flowering rugs look among stones.
Among all the variety of phloxes phlox drummondii - the only one-year-old representative of the genus. He came to us from the southern states of the USA. In nature, Drummond phlox grows on sandy soils in the prairies, this is what determines its preferences in culture: it will achieve the maximum decorative effect in the sunniest and warmest areas. The plant does not tolerate even light partial shade - flowering will not be so plentiful and colorful.
And a small but important detail - in the midday heat under the scorching rays of the sun, unlike its paniculate counterparts, its flowers do not suffer from heat without losing color and shape. This species was discovered by the famous Scottish botanist Thomas Drummond, who in 1835 sent seeds to the UK. The plant has taken root in British gardens and after ten years has become one of the most common garden representatives. Interestingly, in the homeland, Drummond phlox was not introduced into the culture and appeared in gardens imported from England.
This bright and cheerful phlox was also loved by our gardeners, becoming one of the most popular annuals. It is indispensable for creating "chintz" flower beds, sunbeds and borders; it fits perfectly both in a country-style country garden and in rural front gardens, full of a variety of colors. At the same time, it is not inferior in its beauty to its fellow - panicled phlox.
The variety variety of Phlox Drummond is divided into two groups: large-flowered (up to 45 cm tall) and dwarf (total 20 - 26 cm tall) plants.
Flowers can be of all kinds of shades and their combinations - from white and pink to red-raspberry and burgundy. A variety with blue flowers appeared - 'Sugar Stars'. But but to my observations, most gardeners are attracted by varieties with unusual star-shaped and carved petals, they are often decorated with a thin contrasting border and a bright "star" in the center of the flower, for example, the Constellation variety.
Some Xnumx species of floxes are counted, and all of them are remarkably different from each other. WE DECIDED TO TELL ABOUT THE TYPES WHICH FLOWER SPRING. IN THE PRINCIPAL OF THIS REPRESENTATIVES OF THE GROWING AND RYCHELODER GROUP

Creeping phloxes grow with curtains (10 — 18 cm tall) and when flowering they look like satin shawls thrown to the ground. After flowering, they become like dense pillows and retain emerald green throughout the season, even in winter under snow. Modern varieties are mainly hybrids of awl-shaped phlox, Douglas phlox, snow phlox, dwarf phlox, and forked phlox. They are very similar, therefore I will tell about them on the example of a typical representative of this troupe - awl-shaped phlox.
Phlox subulate got its name thanks to the narrow, hard evergreen leaves, just 1 cm long. They are oppositely densely sitting on stems, which spread along the ground. The stems are solid, lignified, grow long to 50 cm. Sometimes additional lintels are formed in the nodes if the stems lie on moist soil. The root system of this species is friable and leaves into the soil is shallow, only up to 15 cm. Therefore, for growth, it requires a small layer of soil. The stems are floating on top of each other, intertwined, and a stiff pillow is obtained, which perfectly winters with green leaves. In spring, a large number of new shoots quickly grow to stems up to 10 cm in height. Each carries a charming inflorescence with several flowers.
In the Moscow region, the awl-shaped phlox blooms in mid-May. Its flowering is very plentiful (no flowers or the bumps of the plant itself can be seen behind the flowers) and long (about a month). The abundant flowering phlox surpasses even its famous relative - panicled phlox. And nature did not deprive him of the aroma.
In contrast to the phlox panicle, which has a very specific smell, which not everyone likes, the phyla are subulate and have a pleasant, tender spring flavor. It intensifies on a bright, sunny day, and insects fly to it.
The phloxes are subulate, and they are quite good medonosomes. If a warm lecho was given, then a second flowering is possible in August-September, but it will be much more modest.
The flowers of the awl-shaped phlox are slightly smaller than the panicled phlox, on average - about 2 cm in diameter. But in structure they do not differ from the flowers of their tall fellow: crumpled petals, fused at the base, form a narrow tube. The petals are bent almost at a right angle to it.
The flat corolla can have different configurations: rounded, star-shaped, notched, deeply dissected. Inside the tube there are one pestle and five stamens. They only look out a little from the tube.
Pestle in phlox has one peculiarity: the ungulate dog is not closed, and when it ripens, the stigma opens into three characteristic lobes, directed in different directions.
By the way, the pestle ripens on 2-3 a day later pollen in the stamens, which contributes to cross pollination.
The color scheme of the awl-shaped phlox is very rich - from white through a variety of shades of pink to crimson, burgundy and lilac. There are varieties with contrasting stripes, shadows and dots on the petals. Each flower is open for a long time, up to two weeks. After wilting, it quietly falls, without violating the beauty of the plant. This only adds phlox awl-shaped positive qualities.
Seeds are tied very little. Rarely can you find seed boxes. They mature within a month and a half after flowering. In each box is from 1 to 3 seeds. Under favorable conditions, they rise next spring. During self-sowing, phloxes other than parents can grow.
In my garden there are several specimens with an interesting coloring and the configuration of the petals that appeared in this way.
Place of planting of phlox
Phlox subulate came to our gardens from North America. In nature it occurs on rocky mountains, slopes, and also on sites with dry soils. Therefore, he likes to grow in a sunny place on dry, poor soil, preferably on a slope. A well-fertilized bed is harmful to him: the curls are friable, effete and unattractive, and the flowers will be smaller.
The necessary conditions are easiest to create on the alpine slides, so the awl-shaped phlox is usually their decoration in the spring garden. You can plant different varieties that will be beautifully combined with other nearby plants, especially since most “al-piyans” prefer to bloom in spring. In addition, f. awl-like and other species similar to it can be planted along the edge of the mixborder, thus obtaining chic spring borders that do not require careful care and amaze all guests of the garden.
The phyllos is subulate extends very well and over time can occupy large areas if necessary, since during the season each stem can grow to 25 cm.
However, to limit this plant is not difficult: after flowering, just cut its shoots. Phlox is trimmed by 1/3 - then the jacket will look much more compact and neat.
If they ate it for a long time without formation, the flowering will weaken, the stems will stretch very much, become long, move a long distance from the root system, the center will become bare, become woody and leafless. Of course, you can try to dig in this lignified part, and then, perhaps, it will give roots and new underground shoots. But this does not always work. It is better to cut the stems in time to maintain the density of the curtains - so the plant will be able to live in one place 10 - 15 years.
Advice of a specialist
Some gardeners trim the phlox curtains that are too large with a trimmer. This greatly reduces the time and labor of care. For f. awl-shaped is quite appropriate this "barbarism". The trimmed portion is then carefully collected with a fan rake. Please note that flower buds uv. awl-like ones are laid in August-September, and if you are late with a haircut and cut the stems in the fall, the plant will not bloom next spring.
Reproduction of phloxes
Creeping phlox is propagated vegetatively and by seeds.
The vegetative way is the simplest. Lay the stem on moist ground and fill it with soil, leaving only the top free. Roots form at the nodes of the stems. If you want to get a lot of plants, cut cuttings of length 6-10, It is necessary to take only the leafy part: lignified and leafless, as a rule, does not give roots. From one phlox, a mass of cuttings will be obtained. At the bottom of the stalk, but if possible, remove the leaves and plant the stalk in moist soil under the jar, half-deepening it. Topsoil can be mixed with sand or vermiculite. Keep the earth moist. The plant can take root in two weeks, and by the fall you will have a fully developed bush. The main condition is to cut the grafts at the right time. Rooting is best done by cutting the stems at the beginning of flowering. During this period, the plant has a lot of strength and it quickly takes root. And so you are definitely not mistaken with the color of the propagated phlox. The shards are rooted better in the soil: in water, the plant gives roots reluctantly.
Seed reproduction is almost not practiced due to the very small amount of seeds formed. Although this way you can get interesting specimens. There are many varieties created by breeders in the USA, France, England, Holland, Germany and Japan. Now we have enthusiasts who are interested in breeding Russian varieties of creeping phlox. And I must say, they already have the first encouraging results.

As mentioned above, it is better to plant phlox on a hill and in rather poor soil. But if the plant is very small, you can put ash and a little compost into the hole during planting to accelerate its growth. Planted f. awl-like and similar species to a place thoroughly cleared of weeds, since, growing through the jacket, they will spoil the appearance of the phlox, and removing them without damaging the plant is quite
Wintering phloops hibernate in the suburbs without shelter. They can be harmed only by the ice crust or early snow gathering, when the leaves under the bright spring sun already begin to work and evaporate the moisture, and the root system is still frozen and can not deliver water to the leaves.
To prevent spring draining, phlox can be shadowed with branches of conifers. But you can’t cover them with a layer of leaves - the plants under them will mate. complicated. In spring, these plants are good to feed with a weak solution of humic fertilizers, in the summer an ash extract will not hinder, and in autumn, bare stalks can be covered with soil mixed with compost. But you need to remember that for lush flowering, awl-shaped phloxes are better to undernourish than overfeed. Sometimes mice frolic in phlox in winter. But gggo is scary to them. Generally f. awl-shaped are very hardy. And if in the spring your plant turned out to be without leaves, with visually dried shoots, do not rush to throw it away: it is quite possible that in two weeks you will not recognize it - the phlox will turn green as if nothing had happened.
The second spring group is phloxes lohlodernovye. These include f. spread wide, f. runaway and some others. Unlike creeping, during flowering they rise above the ground at 26 - 30 cm.
Very often found in the gardens of the Moscow suburbs flock stretched (Phlox divaricala), as this is a completely unpretentious plant. Its shoots spread along the ground and very easily become entangled in the knots. In spring the plant looks really loosely dense: it looks like a light, transparent blue cloud, swaying from the breeze of the breeze and exuding the accepted spring fragrance. On small inflorescences light blue flowers about the size of about 3 cm with a star-shaped corolla form. In the Moscow region it blooms in May, very abundant, often behind the flowers there is no visible leaves.
Phlox spreads well grows in the shade, likes watering and fertilizer. However, with less fertilized soil, it is tolerated. Can grow on dry, poor soils, only flowering will not be so abundant.
FOR THE NOTICE
Creeping phloxes are popular all over the world. For example, during their flowering in the USA, the full moon is called the “pink moon”. And in Japan there is Hitsuzhiyama park, which attracts many people from all over the world to enjoy the stunning fields of flowering phloxes, covering an area of several hectares.
For winter, shelter does not require. This kind of planting is good between hosts, as it blooms, when the hosts have not yet completely dissolved their leaves, and fills the spaces between them. Not bad combined with astilbes, primroses, badans, Tradescantia, daylilies. Effectively looks next to coniferous plants, among stones, near reservoirs.
A less common spring look is flock defiber (Phlox stolonifera). It is brighter than the spread of phlox, the jackets are slightly denser, and the leathery leaves are slightly larger. Blooms profusely in late spring with fragrant bright pink flowers. There are varieties with white and blue whisk. Racing flowering shoots rise above the ground on 20 — 30 cm. Care for it is the same as for the phlox spread.
Phlox escapes deserve greater distribution as a beautiful, unpretentious plant, adding tenderness and variety of colors to the spring garden.
DISAPPEARANCE OF NEW VARIETIES OF FLOXES
DETECTION OF NEW FLOX SOLUTIONS SIMULTANEOUSLY AND EXTREMELY EASY, AND PRETTY COMPLEX LESSON. HOW SO CAN BE, ASK YOU. YES VERY SIMPLE: YOU CAN TAKE ANY COLOR DIVING, BECAUSE ONLY THAT THE MOST RESULTS WILL NOT EAT. IN THIS AND THROWINGS
To be engaged in selection of phloxes it is necessary only to the prepared gardeners who already more than one year grow these flowers. If they grow without problems and you manage to avoid diseases and pest infestations, then your chances for a successful outcome of the matter increase. If success in growing phlox is not so good, it is too early to undertake this difficult work.

Also, you must immediately take into account that for breeding you will need a lot of space in the garden. It should not be occupied by other plants. Optimally, if it is specially designated beds for your new hobby - separate for young seedlings and for already selected specimens.
FOR THE NOTICE
Each breeder chooses for himself a more convenient and acceptable method of pollination of phloxes - this is a matter of taste. However, for beginners, we can recommend free pollination as a simpler and faster method of obtaining unusual seedlings.
So, if all the stars converge and you are determined to engage in the selection of phloxes, be patient: this process is not fast. First you will have to decide how pollination will be conducted, free or targeted. In the first case, you just need to plant different phloxes nearby - pollination will happen by itself. The grown seedlings will be a complete surprise, since it is not known which varieties are pollinated. The second method can be called scientific: its result is more predictable, since you cross specific varieties to obtain a specific goal (color of inflorescences, flower size, plant height, disease resistance, etc.). In this case, you need to pollinate phloxes manually, this requires special skills.
At the end of the season, it will be possible to harvest ripe seeds. It is most convenient to sow them under the winter, so as not to suffer from the temperature regime during storage, because the seeds of phlox require special conditions. In addition, with the winter sowing, they will undergo a natural stratification, which will greatly simplify the life of the beginning breeder.
You will have to collect seeds every couple of days, as they ripen unevenly. A clear sign that it is time to break the box is a brown color and a characteristic crack when pressed. Hatch the ripened seeds from the boxes and sow them on a pre-prepared bed (here it is important to know phlox agricultural technology by heart, in particular, its preferences in the soil).
In the spring shoots will need to be discarded, planting seedlings with an interval of 15 cm. Almost all of them will bloom in the first year of their life.
In the first flowering, it is important to pay attention to the shape and color of the flower - other plant parameters will be fully revealed only in the coming year. Having chosen the most original seedlings, in your opinion, the rest will have to be mercilessly removed. Land the remaining phloxes at a constant place with an interval of 30 - 35 cm.
The second year of life of the new phlox is even more responsible. You will have to pay attention to such important indicators as the shape and size of the flower, the splendor of the inflorescence, the timing and duration of flowering, the habit of the bush, the strength of the stems. It is also necessary to take into account the resistance of the seedling to diseases and pests. When selecting phloxes, it is necessary to note all the nuances, so you should not rely on your memory - be sure to keep a diary in which you will enter all the key characteristics of the plant and record in detail the changes that occur with it.
So, year after year, watching your pets, you will understand which of them are the most beautiful, persistent, and most importantly - interesting in terms of breeding.
Also, if you are going to seriously engage in breeding, you need to be aware of the latest innovations and know the best varieties to really bring out the original, unlike the other, sort of phlox. Well, in order for your seedling to become a variety, it will need to be registered.
NOT FOR ANY SECRET THAT FLOX METHELIC BECOMED IN OUR COUNTRY VIRGINALLY FAVORITE FLOWER. HE DENIES THE HEART OF FLOWERERS AND INSPIRES THE BREEDERS IN ALREADY ONE OF TEN YEARS
© Author: OLGA MANUDINA, collector of plants, Moscow Region
There is not a single garden in our country where phloxes do not grow - albeit burrowing and nameless, but still beloved. Having come to us from far abroad, this flower has found a Russian soul and has become an integral part of our history. A significant contribution to this was made by domestic breeders. Indeed, it is in our country that the most active work is being carried out to develop new varieties; Until now, experts believe that phloxes of domestic selection are the best in the world.
Phlox breeding in Russia began to be practiced in the XIX century. The most famous originator in the USSR was Pavel Gavrilovich Gaganov, who is considered the founder of the school of native selection of phlox. His name with trespekt is produced by all floxomans, because with 1930, 1960-ies, he brought out hundreds of varieties, many of which have survived to our days. They are considered a classic of domestic breeding. Also, Ekaterina Dmitrievna Kharchenko and Maria Fyodorovna Sharonova, who worked in the same era with PG, devoted their lives to the discovery of new varieties of phlox. Gaganov. In the 1970-ies Gaganova's case was continued by Yury Andreevich Repet, who also created many unique phloxes. The famous breeder continues to test new varieties.
Since 1982 year under the guidance of Yu.A. Repeta was carried away by the selection of Plen Alexeyevna Konstantinova, who at the moment is the chairman of the Russian Society of Flock Fanciers (ROLF) and is actively engaged in breeding.
The honorary baton was picked up by many other gifted and successful breeders, including Evgeny Fedorovich Kulikov, Valentina Nikolaevna Hvatova, Tatyana Pavlovna Shapoval, Ivan Nikolaevich and Galina Viktorovna Kruglovy, Yuri Borisovich Markovsky, Oksana Konstantinovna Kudryavtseva, Anna Vladimirovna Kalugenova Kolugina and Tatiana Kolugina, Tatyana Vladimirovna Kalugina and Tatyana Kolugina . Anna Kalugina is currently engaged in a very relevant direction in the selection of phlox - breeding varieties with blue and orange colors. Oksana Kudryavtseva is well known to phlox lovers in St. Petersburg. She regularly gives the world new persistent news.
For the sake of justice it is worth noting that the selection of phlox panicle is not only carried out in the vastness of our vast homeland. In Holland, new varieties appear due to Cohen Jansen. He owns phloxes 'Casablanca', 'Hesperis', 'Herftsering', 'Little Sara', 'Nirvana', 'Utopia'. Also, the well-known creator of the flower beds of the new wave, Pete Udolph, was seen behind the removal of phloxes. His latest sensational creation is the “blue” phlox Blue Paradise. Varieties of Karl Forster, Victor Lemoine and Georg Arends have historical value.

Selection of phlox
Whatever they say and think, the most popular flower is our phlox.
Since mid-summer, he is everywhere - in gardens, in front gardens, in villages and in cities along the roads ...
It seems that the departed August was soaked with a flox aroma.
This is not surprising: the flower is relatively unpretentious, reliable, very beautiful, has a wide variety of varieties, plastic - suitable for the pathos garden surrounding the expensive mansion, and for the most modest village house. And the bouquets from it are wonderful, although this flower is fleeting in a cut, few days live. But after all, the garden is nearby, the varieties in bloom succeed each other, and therefore the vase with phloxes will not be empty for two, but for three months. That interest in phlox does not fade away, showed this summer's exhibitions held in different cities of our country, and everywhere with great success.
Phloxes looked good, despite the extreme heat in Moscow and the incessant rains in St. Petersburg. The tremendous interest of visitors, the garden press, nursery growers. landscape designers and gardeners - the best evidence that phlox is now at the peak of garden fashion. But the selection does not stand still, it is nice that the leading modern breeders work in Russia. It is pleasant that even the latest news that we see at exhibitions quickly find their way into our gardens.
And in which direction is the phlox itself moving?
WORKING WITH COLOR
Phloxes of a classic nature, with a large flower and lush inflorescence, appear regularly among recent innovations in recent years. What is so special about the originality of the newly introduced variety? Color - that’s what breeders are working on, searching for new shades, “playing” the flower, changing colors during the day, depending on the lighting. Among the best blues (lilac, turning blue or blue in the evening and in the rain) phloxes are Unforgettable Evening (Yu.A. Reprev), Awakening (E.A. Konstantinova), Memory of the Heart (Yu.B. Markovsky). Pearlescent shades from pinkish, bluish to grayish-pearl in the variety Rosinka (E.A. Konstantinova), unusual haze in the phlox Perfection (Yu.A. Reprev), an attractive shade of lilac in the variety a Good Genius (OK Kudryavtseva). We all know varieties with a dramatic, completely original color, which are so characteristic that they are remembered at first sight and exclude any repetition and confusion in the names. There are only a few of them, and one of the new ones is phlox Alexey Lensky E.A. Konstantinova. In addition to its unique color, it differs in beautiful dense inflorescences, a slender compact bush, excellent health and vitality.
SUPER HIGH BRUSHES
Most varieties of phlox have a height of 70-100 cm. Such bushes in flower gardens are planted, as a rule, on the middle plan. And really high grades for -adernal - very little, tall varieties of recent years are characterized by endurance, vitality and beautiful appearance. it Aptekarskiy Vegetable Garden and Yuri Reprev EA Konstantinova, Curtsy OK Kudryavtseva, Viy A V. Kalugina.
ORIGINAL FORM OF FLOWER
Among the various forms of the phlox flower, a wheel-shaped and star-shaped corolla, less often a cup-shaped one, is distinguished. The rest are transitional variants of a not quite “wheel-, not a clear cup or implicit star.
In recent years, varieties have appeared with completely new flower forms: with the separated and strongly wrapped edges of the petals (Pride of Russia by Yu.A. Repep, Sea Pena, Polka-Butterfly EA Konstantinova), with a distinctly embossed flower. Konstantinova, Minuet, O.K. Kudryavtseva), with distinctly bent forward petals (Golubka, Vologda Lace by EA Konstantinova).
The inflorescences of these varieties have a completely different texture - marble carving in phlox. Legend, harvested silk in the variety Minuet etc. Wrapped petals give the habitual phlox the appearance of a completely different plant, especially in the cut - Sea foam looks like a milky-flowered bell, Pride of Russia resembles hyacinth ...
It's no secret that ordinary varieties do not look very good after heavy rains. The best of them restore decorativeness relatively quickly. By the way, the high rate of restoration of inflorescences after heavy rains and hail is one of the important characteristics of a good-quality variety. But no matter how quickly the "bush" shakes after the rain, for some time it is almost ugly: the flowers hang "face down", the inflorescences are disheveled, there is no shape, the color fades.
Elena Konstantinova, as a landscape designer, most of all others felt the need for reliable and beautiful phlox flower beds that are least prone to weather troubles. So it turned out that she, as an experienced breeder, on the one hand, and a master of flower beds, on the other, set herself the task: to develop a line of small-flowered phloxes.
Small-flowered varieties are phloxes with a flower size of less than 3 cm. In all other respects, they had to meet the best phlox standards: a variety of persistent shades, large inflorescences, strong stems, long flowering, and vitality. Plus, of course, the diverse height of the bushes and the timing of flowering. The first phlox of this series was presented at an exhibition in Moscow 5 years ago, since then a brilliant parade of small-flowered varieties continues. We will name only a few: smoky Mr. X, bright, blooming for more than 2 months Late Veil, light with an ideal inflorescence Magical flute, grayish bluish Vechernitsa, elegant Gorodzhanka, bluish Mardemarin. At the last exhibition in Moscow among the small-flowered novelties EA. Konstantinova was first shown a variety Swan Lake - a slender white phlox with a huge openwork inflorescence of light star-shaped flowers with curled edges of the petals.

FLOXES - LANDING AND STROKE: FLOWERS SHARE EXPERIENCE
Secrets of magnificent phloxes
Let's start with
Do you know your grade? In most cases, the variety is unknown or forgotten. The plant was bought at the market or from neighbors ...
If the bush is strong, healthy, then the name does not matter. And if he is frail, it is better to get rid of it and buy it is a variety, and not a mongrel plant.
Variety plants differ from wild species in that they have sturdy peduncles. This is one of the conditions for the seedling to be given the title of variety. Now with this strictly: if the old varieties have such a flaw met, then now the selection criteria are very rigid and the disorderly bush simply will not register.
Now about the diseases. Phlox have varieties that are slightly prone to powdery mildew. While there is no 100% resistance, it is possible to find varieties with high stability. This is stated in the description of the variety, you need to study the catalogs. Resistant to powdery mildew are the varieties of Success, Bride, Michurinets, Rumyanyi and others.
And, finally, the size of the inflorescences. Varietal plants, as a rule, have magnificent caps, and if you bought SORT, then the inflorescence should be large. But if it is not so, look for mistakes in agricultural technology.
What do we not do?
Varietal phloxes can be sold by a bush from 2-3 shoots or by a rooted cuttings. In the latter case, large inflorescences and the first year does not have to wait, the plant must gain strength. In the future, much depends on care.
To obtain large inflorescences, phloxes are planted on
sun or partial shade. It is necessary to distinguish between shadow and partial shade. In the dense shade of a tree or structure, phlox blooms worse. The stems are stretched, inflorescences become smaller. The likelihood of powdery mildew is increasing. Penumbra is a light shade from a tree or shading for several hours - most of the day the plants should be in the sun.
On poor sandy soil phloxes will grow, but you will not get large caps. When planting, you need to make compost or rotted manure. It is not only food, but also a substrate that retains moisture.
On thick clay, phloxes also suffer. They are depressed, inflorescences are small. Clay should be loosened up.
Sand is not the only baking powder. Over the years, it simply "goes" deeper, and the phlox grows again in clay. Compost, sawdust, rotted manure, that is, materials with large particles, are loosened better.
The area where phloxes grow should be well drained. In the lowlands you can not plant phloxes! Stagnant water is contraindicated to them! If the soil does not dry out for a long time in spring or autumn during precipitation, the phlox will simply die. Before that they can get sick and also have an oppressed look.
The lack of moisture strongly affects the state of phlox. They grow small, the leaves often turn yellow. From lack of watering phloxes are starving, because plants get food only in a dissolved form!
But it is important to water properly! This is best done under the root, without falling on the leaves. Irrigation irrigation causes powdery mildew, especially if watered from a well. Cold water leads to disease - not only to powdery mildew, but also to root rot.
Phlox can bloom without top dressing. But if our goal is large caps, then top dressing is necessary. They are brought in at least three times: in the spring during the growth of shoots, at the bud stage and immediately after flowering.
Phlox is a winter-hardy culture. However, old bushes may freeze. This is due to the fact that the kidneys grow up annually and become closer to the soil surface. So they suffer from snowless frosts.
The way out is to mulch the roots for the winter and transplant phlox deeper, combining this with division for rejuvenating the bush.
Four steps to phlox health
These flowers are the undoubted favorites of many lovers of ornamental plants. But there are many florists among those who believe that phloxes do not require special care, they say, planted it and forgot it. Is it really so?
Alas, forgetting will not work, because these plants are often seriously ill. And if measures are not taken in time, then they may even wither. What diseases most often undermine the health of phlox?
It was wet like snow
First, the mučnistaâ rosa. A white coating indicates its appearance, and this usually happens in the middle of summer. This fungal disease quickly spreads to other plants. The leaves of phloxes become gray-brown and, in the end, die off. Most often, the disease attacks plants whose plantings are thickened, and also grow on clogged and unpolished areas. Moreover, bushes that are not rejuvenated in time get sick with powdery mildew much more often than strong young plants.
What to do
Noticing the signs of the disease, you will have to roll up your sleeves and begin to act.
In the fight against powdery mildew, some drugs are suitable, in particular 0,2% suspension of "Fundazole". Spraying plants with 0,5% soda ash or copper-soap solution works well against the disease. It is simple to prepare: you need to mix 20-30 g of copper sulfate and 250 g of green soap and dilute with warm water.
If the disease is started, you must immediately destroy the diseased plant, and harvest cuttings from healthy phlox only.
Why does the plant wither away
Secondly, phlox is often affected by leaf spot, which can be seen already in early June. In this case, numerous small grays with a brown border and black specks of spots appear on the lower plates. Sometimes the leaves curl and then dry and fall. All this, of course, undermines the plant's health, makes it vulnerable even to the cold.
What to do
To protect phlox from spotting, plant residues must be removed and burned, weeding should be done, and the plantings should be treated with 0,5% copper chloride. The previously mentioned 0,2% suspension of “Fundazole” is also useful for these purposes.
A good measure in everything
Thirdly, leaf alternaria is often attacked by phloxes - this is when a scattering of small lilac-brown spots appears on them, which
merging, they turn into stripes at the edges of the leaves. Under the influence of this disease, the leaves also begin to dry out and fall off. A disease manifests itself when phloxes bloom.
What to do
The same methods will help to cope with this infection as with leaf spotting. In addition, it will be necessary to ensure that the plants do not experience a deficiency of moisture. Drying and yellowing lower leaves may indicate this, which often leads to the death of the plant. By the way, drought after heavy rains can also cause leaf damage.
However, an excess of moisture threatens to ruin the phlox. Since the roots of the plant will not have enough air, they will begin to rot and fade.
Fourthly, sometimes it happens that cracks appear on the stalks of phloxes in the lower part, which often reach a length of at least 15 cm. This happens because the weather is very humid, besides the plant is overfed with nitrogen or its plantings are thickened .
Before planting, hold the phlox delenka in disinfecting solutions, then rinse in water and incubate for about 2 hours in an Epina or Zircon solution.
