With a pleasant scent, long blooming period, different sizes between two and four feet(few grow taller or shorter)with a medium growth rate, and ease of care these low maintenance flowers have mass appeal in the US. Some types of phlox need to be planted based on how many flowers are wanted, and others will spread as they grow. They will need at least six hours of direct sunlight a day, but in the hot climates partial shade is recommended. If compost or aged manure is added to their soil, it will help with water retention as they are heavy feeders and adding some compost will allow ample conservation.

Other varieties look cute as a part of a bouquet or addition to surrounding the centerpiece in your garden. Phlox is an elegant way to add some curb appeal and atmosphere to a home or garden, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds and maybe even some bumble bees may dance around and make a hive nearby. Some small spiders may nest among phlox acting as natural pest control, keeping insects and spiders alike out of one's home.
