Also known as Downy Phlox and Fragrant Phlox. 

Prairie Phlox is a mounding perennial that produces clusters of fragrant, pink to lavender flowers. The fragrance attracts insects and the deep, narrow throat is perfect for long-tongued bees, bee-flies, butterflies, skippers and moths. A variety of insects feed on Prairie Phlox. It’s also a food source for rabbits, deer and even groundhogs. 

Prairie Phlox does well in dry to moderately moist, well-draining soil in full sun or part sun. It is not picky about soil type, thriving in loam, clay, sand or rock. Under stress, the lower leaves turn yellow and drop off. It appreciates a summer mulch which helps keep the root zone cool.
