Phlox paniculata 'Peacock White' (garden phlox) is still going strong well into September. What a terrific perennial for attracting bees (see above!), butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. They also tolerate deer activity, and can grow under Black Walnut trees. It grows to about 4’ tall and 3’ wide, and has a stunning plume of white blooms starting in July and going through September. It likes sun to part shade the best, and needs watering throughout dry spells. The species is native to the eastern U.S.
