GARDEN RAMBLES SUNDAY, JULY 12, 1964, Loke Chorles American PreM r*'; T **»- . ¥ ' ... f Phlox Thrive in Summer Sim or Shade By MAE STEPHENS The many varieties of phlox arc garden favorites. Early blooming, dwarf phlox are often used with azaleas. Creeping phlox is useful as a ground cover. Bright-colored, low-growing annual phlox are easily grown. There is yet another variety known as summer phlox. These plants are hardy, her baceous perennials which live for several years. Their tops will die down in winter, but new plants will sprout from the roots each spring. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Myers. 4118 Bayou Road, grow the perennial phlox for their brilliant summer bloom. They have used (hem with annuals for an accent color against grey walls. The phlox thrive in full sun,! but they will grow and bloom! in partial shade. Mrs. Myers j has a large planting in a front i bed which receives full morn- j ing sun. She has also used them be-' hind a trellis in a partially | shaded area in the back, They; do require (hrce or four hours i sun to set bloom however. Phlox need plenty of wafer during the growing season, but (he beds should be well-drained for best results. Thfc plants will resced themselves, but seedlings usually revert to (he original magenla color. New varieties of phlox can be bought in colors of white, pink, lavender mic, red. Clumps should be divided and replanted about, every three years to maintain vigorous plants. Tf is recommended thnl seed heads be out off following the blooming season. Mrs. Myers has used a pretty combination of edging plants up her front walk. She has ornamental purple peppers and to- renias. Torcnias are often used for Inte summer bloom. They are an attractive, very bushy, small plant which blooms with a purple and lavender flower which resembles a miniature snapdraeon. Rflch flower has a blotch of yellow on the lip. The torenias like a moist place to grow.
