Phlox paniculata thrives moist or rich low woods, thickets, alluvial banks and gravel bars along streams and bluff bases in organic, moist to average soil in full sun to light shade. It can be found from Ontario to Florida and west to Minnesota to Texas. In some locations, it is theorized the garden phlox found in the wild are escaped from cultivation. Plants in shade will have smaller flowers and weaker stems. P. paniculata is tolerant of drought once established with P. 'Jeana' a cultivar that is highly mildew resistant. For best performance, deadhead flowers to prolong blooming season. Generally, deer find this plant to be quite attractive so it is best planted in an area where there is enough vegetation to offer more selection or plant it in a protected area.
