Summer Phlox
(Phlox paniculata)

Phlox comes in all colors from darkest magenta to white.  The sweet-scented tubular flowers are attractive to moths, butterflies and hummingbirds.

The English settlers found these plants blooming on the edges of glades and selectively bred them for color and hardiness.

They like moist soil and will flourish in full sun or partial shade.
