The Scent of Summer: Sweet Garden Phlox

Over the years, I have come to appreciate flowers that smell like flowers. So many modern varieties have been bred for bright colors and giant blooms, but not for fragrance. Garden Phlox (phlox paniculata) is an old-fashioned, tall and fragrant flower that is perfect for the back of border gardens. We have these planted along the curve of our wrap around porch.  They are just delightful.
