Phlox paniculata is a wonderful summer plant for its bold, colorful flower heads that cover the plant from July through August. The fragrant flowers attract butterflies, hummingbirds and make wonderful cut flowers.
It grows in full sun to part shade and prefers rich, moist, well-drained soils. Remove faded blooms to extend blooming time.
