About Phlox: Phlox attracts butterflies, is lightly fragrant and offers many forms to fit most gardens. Paniculata, maculata, arendsii, carolina & glaberrima fit into the mid border, making great cut flowers. Subulatas are shorter, perfect for the front of the border, rock and alpine gardens. Divaricata and stolonifera are like subulatas but enjoy some shade.
