 Each year my white phlox grow tall with wonderful green leaves and they have started to flower but all the leaves are becoming dry and are falling off from the base of each plant.They get plenty of water .this happens every year and not sure what can be done

Eelworm is a serious problem with phlox but you say yours flower well with wonderful green leaves.  Is it just at the base thaf leaves fall off? It doesn't sound like eelworm then.  

Is the ground very free draining ?   If so it could be shortage of water ESP with the recent heat we have all experienced
