Phlox 'David's Lavender' (Phlox paniculata)
Phlox 'David's Lavender' (Phlox paniculata) Garden phlox (P. paniculata), native to the eastern half of the U.S., likes rich, well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight. There are some wonderful varieties to choose from. A great companion plant for Beebalm.
David's Lavender has all of the disease resistance of 'David' and flowers of deep lavender pink. Lots of flower power in this one! Reaching as high as 5', summer phlox puts on a colorful show for several weeks from mid- to late summer. Its sweet perfume lures a variety of butterflies, such as swallowtails, Painted Ladies, Great Spangled Fritillaries, sulphurs and skippers.
Deadhead to prevent self-seeding, as volunteers will revert to less attractive colors. Divide the clump every few years and reset the young shoots from the clump's edge into fresh, amended soil. Garden phlox is easy to propagate from cuttings.
