Cultivar Notes - 'Fort Hill'
An outstanding performer! Deep pink, fragrant flowers bloom so profusely they nearly hide the foliage. Remarkably heat and drough tolerant.
Genus Notes - Phlox
Europeans first became aware of Phlox around the 1630s, after the exploration of eastern North America by John Tradescant the Younger. But only in the eighteenth century did the gardens of Europe receive this species from various American colonies. As botanical explorers ventured farther west, more kinds of Phlox were found.

Through hybridization and selection, the varieties of Phlox grown today far surpass their predecessors in depth and breadth of color, length of bloom, plant habit, and general constitution. Improvement continues to this day.

The large trusses of flowers held atop sturdy, leafy stems offer rich, sweet scents. Their fragrance readily wafts about the garden, traveling amazing distances through the air. The low-growing varieties of Phlox, with their showy flowers, are particular favorites and bloom in spring or early summer.

There are big Phlox and small Phlox, spring Phlox and summer Phlox. All produce masses of five-petaled, often fragrant flowers in a range of colors. Garden Phlox need rich, evenly moist soil, creeping Phlox require excellent drainage.

Species Notes - Phlox subulata
Creeping phlox is long-lived, low-growing mats of evergreen foliage with tremendous spring bloom. Perfect for edging, in rock gardens, or planted along slopes.
