Phlox are tall, showy perennials which live for many years giving a magnificant colourful display from July to September each year. They are highly scented and loved by bees and butterflies so are an ideal plant for a natural or cottage garden. They are best placed in a sunny position but will be alright in slight shade. Plant in rich, moist but well-drained soil.
Each year you should get two flushes of flowers through the growing season; if you like cut flowers, Phlox are ideal as they last very well in a vase.
