Phlox is the perfect addition to your insectary or butterfly garden. Their average size of 20 inches makes them a versatile plant in many areas of the garden. Plant them in raised beds, large pots and containers, or even along walkways, driveways and fences. The star shaped blooms open up to expose colors of red, pink, white and purple, depending on the variety grown.
Phlox is typically categorized as an annual flowering plant, though some varieties can be grown as a tender perennial if the winter temperatures aren't too harsh.
