Phlox Arendsii – Hesperis is from the Polemoniaceae family of plants. It has pyramid-like clusters of purplish-pink, fragrant flowers in the summer. It is rather disease-free and easy to grow. It is a herbaceous perennial that grows well in the sun and fertile well-drained soil, but keep the roots cool and avoid watering from overhead. It needs good air circulation in order to prevent powdery mildew. It does attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
