Prairie phlox blooms for almost 2 months during late spring or early summer. This plant has a taproot and sends up multiple stems. Large colonies can be established over time as it spreads rapidly by stolons. Is more tolerant of drier soils than most other species of phlox. Resistant to powdery mildew, but attacked by spider mites.
