This North American native makes a great show in the early and midsummer border, especially in colourful cottage gardens, with erect, packed spikes of gently scented, lilac-mauve flowers with a dark eye above the dark green leaves. It's often grown with the white 'Omega' which has a pink eye. Try and grow it in several smallish clumps to avoid having one large, bare gap when it stops flowering at the end of summer, possibly surrounding it with dahlias which come into flower as the phlox dies down. Keep deadheading the phlox, and cut it back in the autumn.
