Phlox plants are easy-to-grow, low-maintenance perennials that add stunning color wherever planted. They produce small, fragrant, star-shaped flowers that are simply irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds!
Phlox (pronounced Floks) plants are available in spring-blooming Creeping Phlox and summer-blooming Garden Phlox. Creeping Phlox grows low to the ground, has a spreading or ‘creeping’ habit, and is used most often for borders, along walkways or in front of gardens and for ground cover, creating a carpet of flowers. Garden Phlox, on the other hand, grows more in clumps, with a taller flower spike or ball that extends above the foliage. They both boast semi-evergreen foliage that remains until late fall. It does well in rain gardens.
