Phlox paniculata, Garden Phlox, is native to woodland edge habitats, moist meadows, and lightly shaded river banks. This species has a stunning statuesque form, reaching 4-5′ high and with a 3′ spread. Fragrant, tubular, violet-pink florets are clustered in masses of terminal, pyramidal blooms that flourish over an extended summer period from July through September. Deadheading spent flowers can prolong the bloom period, and the blooms make and excellent cut flower. Later fruits are borne in oval capsules that make excellent fall forage for songbirds. To mimic its natural habitat, this cultivar may need irrigation during dry periods, and applying mulch can help retain moisture and support root health.
