There have been whispers of warm weather coming our way. I pray mother nature is not being a tease, or I may sob quietly to myself in dismay. Regardless of mother natures intentions spring is getting closer with each passing day, bringing growing levels of excitement around Eagleson Landscape Co! I myself am delighted with the idea of warmth, sunny days and spring flowers! Celebrating the coming of spring, let’s get down to the nitty gritty and talk plants. Today we are going to discuss a perennial that is popular in many landscapes in the area, Phlox.
Phlox are wonderful wildflowers that boast many varieties, low maintenance requirements and are generally easy to care for. Their fragrance attracts butterfly’s and birds or make a wonderful addition to a bouquet in your home. Phlox prefer full sun and moist soils, but are hardy enough to give you, the garden, some leeway. The many varieties of Phlox provide a color range from pink to white to blue and a wide range of sizes, making it easy to incorporate into a landscape.
A wonderful flower that again will benefit the suffering honeybee population. I harp on this to encourage understanding and hopefully a pro honeybee mindset. Here is another link with some information of their plight. Read up on Phlox here and find out if this perennial is right for your garden!
