Garden Phlox

(Phlox paniculata)

Despite its 4-foot height, this fast-growing perennial rarely needs staking to support the fragrant 1-inch-wide white or pale- to dark-lilac flowers. For a particularly long growing season choose 'Eva Cullum,' a slightly shorter cultivar with fragrant pink flowers and slightly darker centers over green leaves in pyramidal clusters from July to September.

Grows 24 to 30 inches tall and wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8; full sun to partial shade.
