This Plant of the Week: Garden Phlox
by Christina Timm
The Garden Phlox is a native plant to the United States that offers a mass of color and a long blooming season. With your choice of just about any color the Garden Phlox is popular for its billowy blooms that holds its color during the summer and well into the early fall time. Their five petaled flowers fan out in multi-clustered blooms creating a large flower head much like a hydrangea. You can look forward to blooms showing color in July, lasting well into September.
