A phlox garden
will start to bloom in April and so late as November there is likely to be a bit of flower color here and there. But all through the winter there will be the broad bronzed leaves of P. ovata and the lighter green of P. subulata, P. timoena and P. divaricata. These are April and May phloxes, but not all of them. Later come the tall P. suffruticosa and the taller P. panlculata.
