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.
Having just a plain green patch of land in your garden is a little too bland sometimes. Here's where ground covers can help! What ground covers do is that they produce beautiful blooms and enhance the look of the otherwise bare patches of land. Ground covers also help us bind the soil and protect the land from weeds. They can also fill a lot of empty space in the garden within a short span of time.
