Eugene, Ore. -- Phlox has been grown in North America for a long time, it’s a North America native. It likes full sun, but can also handle some shade. Most Phlox grow to between two feet and three feet tall and don't require staking.
The great thing about Phlox is after a quick dead head and it will send up two to three more blooms in its place and you can continue to extend that color even farther into summer.
Phlox are also pollinator friendly, so bees and butterflies tend to be attracted to their scent, smell, and bright colors.
