Phlox paniculata is known by several common names including Perennial Phlox, Fall Phlox, and Garden Phlox because it is often used in gardens.   Perennial Phlox is one of our favorite fall flowers often found along streams and in open woods.  Phlox paniculata forms colonies often 30 to 36 inches tall covered with showy 1.5 inch rosy-lavender to soft pink flowers.  Phlox paniculata is a favorite in the wild garden due to its attractive fall flowers that require little or no maintenance and are often covered with butterflies.  Perennial Phlox paniculata is spectacular as a mass in a meadow or open woodland.  Phlox paniculata Garden Phlox prefers moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil and full sun or high open shade.

Phlox paniculata L.
Fall phlox, Perennial phlox
Polemoniaceae (Phlox Family)
USDA Symbol: PHPA9
USDA Native Status: Native to U.S.

Fall phlox is a showy clump-former reaching a height of 3-4 ft. The pink lavender or rarely white flowers are borne in a 4-8 in. wide terminal cluster. A pyramidal cluster of white to pink or lavender flowers atop a stout smooth erect stem. The stemís narrow oval leaves are 4-7 in. long.

If found in the wilds beyond its natural range this species has probably escaped from cultivation. The plant has been widely used as a medicinal herb; the leaf extract is used as a laxative and for treating boils. Many color forms are found in gardens. The very similar Large-leaved Phlox (P. amplifolia) has a hairy stem only 6-15 leaf pairs below the flower cluster and a hairless corolla tube; it is found in the southern Appalachian Mountains.
