Fragrant Pairie Phlox

Fragrance, beauty and drought tolerance… what more could you want in a flower?

Prairie phlox (Phlox pilosa) is a native Texas perenial that does well in part sun or bright shade.  The smell is intoxicating and it is a butterfly manget!  It has a heady bloom in the late spring and then goes partiallyl dormant for summer and fall.  It stands about a foot tall.  We have it blanketing the ground underneath the weeping peach trees right near a garden bench.  Heaven!
