Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata) is a genus very rich in species. The most important representatives are native to North America. One of the most important species of garden phloxes blooming in summer is Phlox paniculata, which includes almost all the current varieties of tall garden phloxes. The height of the plants ranges from 60 to 180 cm. They bloom from July to September. Cultivation of garden phloxes started in the late 19th century; however, the greatest number of interesting varieties date back to approximately 1930 – 1960. Crossbreeding resulted in a wide range of varieties with varied flower colours and sizes. The original species had pink, violescent or white flowers.
