In summer, the deep green foliage is topped by large flat headed or slightly rounded clusters of highly fragrant magenta or lavender-pink flowers. Summer phlox forms robust clumps in sunny or lightly shaded sites with moist well drained soils. Blooming occurs from mid to late summer into early autumn for about 6 weeks. Small inconspicuous oval capsules follow. Magnet for Butterflies and Hummingbirds.
