Phlox
 
paniculata, maculata and carolina growing in the garden.

Phlox are one of the prominent plants in Lyn's cottage garden.
This is what Lyn has to say about them.


"
Phlox may well be considered to be 'Old fashioned' but not to me. They give real value with flower power and lovely scent.
Colours available are pretty varied too.
Some of the paniculata get the 'Chelsea chop' in late spring to stagger their first flowering.
The carolina are the first to come into bloom in early summer.
Phlox can be difficult to obtain as potted plants, and if you buy mail order, you don't always receive what you asked for.
If you remove the dead heads after first flowering, on the paniculata you can get a smaller secondary flowering which keeps going till late September and into October."

* Chelsea chop = cutting the tops of the new growth out, to delay flowering.
