Phlox paniculata
I have some Phlox paniculata which I planted up into a container for the summer. I would like to know if it is best left in the container over winter or to move it into the border now as I now have space for it.
Also, do these plants require cutting back to ground level for winter?
Thank you



Most plants are better off in the ground than in containers, I would leave the shoots on to give a little protection over winter, and cut them back in spring when you see new growth.
