Garden phlox Overview

This is a tall perennial which grows about 1m. In the summer it will produce rich long-lasting terminal flowerheads, with small 5-lobed flowers. You should plant in fertile soil which is kept evenly moist but has good drainage. Give them a sunny spot, but a partially shaded area is acceptable.
