It does look like Phlox.
In my experience they get slowly bigger as a clump and don't really take over a garden - but are better in the ground than a pot.

It looks to me like Phlox, but there are several different varieties. I have lots of white ones in my garden they can grow quite tall and multiply every year, but I have trouble with the purple and pink ones, I have to keep them on the patio as it's more sheltered.

Hope that helps.

I don't think it is phlox but it certainly isn't Syringa, they are 4 petaled.

Not really arguing about the phlox id - but could we see the whole plant? I can't get a sense of how big these individual flowers are. If they are really quite small, (and you did say 'tree') could it be lilac (Syringa). I'm sure I've seen one that colour in the catalogues. My lilac is out now, but the phlox is not yet.

Some variety of Phlox paniculata?

I think herbaceous perennial rather than 'evergreen' - dies back in the autumn then regrows new stems in the spring. Best thing to do is trim the woody stems to about 8 inches in the autumn and they will protect the new growth from the worst of the frost (and prop up the early growth).

This one could be some kind of phlox. It might benefit from a bit of a haircut!

Hi
I wish I'd seen your query earlier as I planted a new border in the front garden for late summer and autumn back in early September. Lots of these plants continued through the Winter too, but it has been mild here in the South. I'm planning to add to it for Spring and Summer.
Here is a list of some of the things I put in for Autumn and into Winter:
Geranium Rozanne
Gaura Rosyjane
Gaura Belleza
Penstemon Amelia Jane - still in leaf
Penstemon Pinocalada -still in leaf
Aquilegia Sugar plum fairy
Lonicera Baggens Gold - evergreen
Anemenone Honorine JHobert
Anemenone September Charm
Heuchera Silver scrolls -still in leaf
Ceratostigma plumbaginoides
Ceratostigma griffithii
Have planted lots of bulbs and the cyclamen have done well and are still in leaf.

Other plants in the back garden and in shade, still in leaf are
Pulmonaria and been in flower since January
Hellebores been in flower since January
Brunnera Jack Frost
Wallflowers planted in Autumn and some flowered in February.
Perennial Wallflower - Erysium Bowles Mauve - flowers all year - I just dead-head from time to time, and the flowers keep going.



Other plants

Phlox Paniculata Pink Attraction
SedumAutumn Joy
Aster Island Bahamas
Liriope - lovely bright grass like leaves - not in flower now.

Hope this may have helped.

My Phlox subulata "Red Wings" isn't looking very happy - hope it's the strange weather we've had this year.

Re: Best plant to go in front of rudbeckia

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

In forum: General

It is always nice to have at least a minimum of 4 feet to have some sort of show, only for hedges do you clear up 2 feet and that depends on the plant chosen for the hedge. Try and put some shrub roses in, something in the yellow to orange tones, that way they want clash with the rudbeckias, put some phlox divaricata, it will weave through the rose in early spring and go for some small bulbs that will give you early colour and be covered by the phlox also try some purple heucheras for contrast of colour.

Lots of plants originate from the US, asters, phlox and eupatoriums, to name just a few.. I have the celadines referred to in many English books, not in a favourable way albeit.

Re: Re: Small damp,part shady,north facing back garden!!

Message from Angela Graham

Hi there,
Many thanks for your helpful advice. Yesterday, I dug in some wood chippings (care of the nearby railway embankment tree men!!) and two big sacks of horticultural grit. This has helped to break up some of the big lumps of clay and the continuing dry weather we have had,has also helped to break up the clay. I have noticed just how many worms are in this small area of soil and I am hopeful that they will also do a good job! I have put wire cages around my exisitng phlox plants to protect the small shoots from my pet rabbits.

In forum: Delphinium Magic Fountain Series

Delphiniums are my favourite flowers. If only I could grow them! The name's quite pleasant, too, not like some...


A Fantasia of Flower Names
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lobelia, camellia, wisteria,
phlox.

Periwinkle, fairy thimble, honeysuckle,
stocks.

Dahlia, azalea, lavender, hortensia,
marigold, maidenhair, moon-flower, star-flower,
box.

Hare bell, fairy bell, blue bell, pimpernel,
mud wort, stink wort -
Fairyland or Hell?

Bog wort, hog wort, stab wort, wound wort,
spleen wort, bladder wort, mad wort, madder wort...

Enchanting plant names some have got.
Others need some thought.

_______________________


Not that anything's flowering right now... is it? Not in my garden it ain't. Here's how my last year's gardening diary would have read, had I deemed it worth writing one:



End of Year Evaluation
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

January: stark stagnation.
February: no variation.
March: slug gang infiltration.
April: nettle infestation.
May: hot sun! Need irrigation.
June: urgent deforestation.
July: rain: inundation.
August: mud; exasperation.
September: harvest desperation.
October: leaves cause drain blockation.
November: bleak dilapidation:
rotting, reeking vegetation.
December: time off! Celebration!
Send the garden to dam...
but you can do the pronunciation.

But if, unlike me, you still have flowers in your garden, now is the time to be preparing them for presentation as special Christmas gifts.

Season's greetings!

Re: Weed or not?

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

In forum: Identify a plant

Give any plant what it likes and it becomes a weed, except for the sterile plants. Depends on what you use it for, if you would like it to carpet the ground then it is a great plant, I use a lot of plants like phlox divaricata as an early bloomer that allows taller plants to come through and will take the shade, as weed suppressors and they give me dual season of interest in the same area.
