Phlox is a genus of 67 species of perennial and annual plants in the family Polemoniaceae. They are mostly found in North America in diverse habitats. They flower in spring, sometimes in fall or summer. This is a very delicate plant and requires good care for keeping it fresh and living. They are wither white, pink or lavender, trumpet- shaped flowers arranged in an elongated cluster along the length of the stem. Because of its commercial desirability, Garden Phlox has been significantly hybridized to give different coloured blooms.
