Healthy herbaceous Phlox maculata are a great addition to the border at this time of year. Clear fresh green foliage topped by large panicles of pure white flowers exuding a sweet perfumed scent.
Native to the eastern states of America where it colonises areas of moist soil, meadows and stream/river banks. From a dense rootstock the semi woody herbaceous stem pushes up to 1.2m at flowering. This stem is robust enough to support itself without the need for a stake.
