Common name: Prairie Phlox

Native plant

Prairie Phlox is a species that is small in height but frequently bushes out to cover relatively large areas.  As with other Phlox, it puts on quite a flower show, producing an abundance of pink to light purple flower clusters late spring to early summer, lasting 3 to 4 weeks.  The flowers are fragrant and attract a range of bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
