Garden phlox (Phlox paniculata), a staple of gardens since colonial times, is one of the most recognizable and popular perennials today. Large clusters of colorful flowers bloom for as long as six weeks and provide nectar for dozens of butterfly species. George Coombs, Mt. Cuba Center’s Research Horticulturist, highlights the breadth of diversity within this group of native plants and discusses the top performing selections
from a three-year evaluation program. Learn which cultivars are mildew resistant and attract the most pollinators, and enjoy a trip through the Trial Garden while the phlox are in peak bloom.
