Jerrry, those are Phlox the come in lots different colors, very easy to grow.
Thank you so much!
Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata)
If you decide you like it and want to get some they are very easy to grow, spread nicely, and come in a variety of colours that are mauve or pink based. They also range in hue from pale shades to quite deep colours that really pop. Some of them also have a lovely scent that really comes out at night. They are a terrific flower for the perennial garden.
Wonderful phlox. I love them in my garden. I have them in all colors.
Phlox are amazing plants and the fragrance is heavenly!
Phlox are very pretty - do yours attractive butterflies? We actually did a post on the 'Peppermint Twist' Phlox - has a pretty pink and white striped flower http://bit.ly/15J4xIp
Very pretty! Is it grown in the shade and does it multiply? I live in South Georgia, would love to plant some
@Carroll B In North Carolina, they grow in sun or shade. The colors are brighter in sun. They will self seed if you leave the flowers on until the seeds turn brown. I cut mine back in the fall when the leaves start to fall. Don't pull them up by the roots and the old ones will come back.
I have a wrap around front porch and I would love to get some of these to go around it. I was hoping with them in bloom right now I could find some for sale but no luck yet.
@Jerry Taylor Sometimes stores get them in now through Sept~David's Phlox which was perennial of the year in 2002 is a white fragrant phlox. and is an excellent back drop int the garden. Good luck
Phlox are very hardy and can be grown in full sun to partial shade. The clumps get bigger every year and will likely need to be divided by the 4th yr. They also come in white which is a beautiful pop in the garden at this time of year.
Phlox, come in lots of colours, beautiful.
Thanks, @Pat so much for this information. I will definitely plant some of these.
