Phlox

Easy to grow, Phlox are mat-forming or erect perennials with masses of small, star-shaped, colorful flowers either in spring or summer. They come in a range of heights, habits, bloom seasons and colors. Spring-blooming creeping Phlox makes a perfect ground cover in rock gardens and in woodland plantings. Summer-blooming tall Phlox is ideal to brighten the back of the border with its exuberant summer flowers. Whether your garden is sunny or shady, with moist or dry soil, there is a Phlox that will suit your site!
