A Natural History and Gardener's Guide

Author: James H. Locklear

No other group of plants in North America can equal Phlox for its preeminence in the wild and in the garden. Its sixty-one species appear in (and sometimes define) plant communities up and down the continent, from Beringia to Chihuahua, from the Siskiyous to Okefenokee. And no American genus has enjoyed a richer history in the world’s gardens. German nurseryman Karl Foerster once declared that "a garden without phlox is an error!"

Astoundingly, until now, there has been no comprehensive horticultural account of these beautiful plants. No longer. In Phlox, plant expert James H. Locklear provides detailed profiles of all the currently recognized species of Phlox. Each contains general and botanical descriptions, geographic range, a description of its environment, associations with other plants, and notes on cultivation.

This serious, comprehensive, and authoritative work is sure to be welcomed by Phlox enthusiasts, native plant aficionados, rock gardeners, and those with an interest in the natural history of North American flora.
