Product Profile: Phlox

Written by Rona Wheeldon

In this month’s Product Profile, we’re taking a look at phlox. A popular filler flower, this dainty bloom is available in a variety of different colours.


From the Polemoniaceae family, the word phlox is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘flame’. Phlox paniculata is the most common cut flower variety and it gets its name from its dense formation of flowers in panicles (loose branching clusters of flowers).

Available in white, pink, lilac and purple, some varieties are bi-coloured with darker centres, which are also sometimes referred to as eyes. For example, pastel pink petals with deep pink centres. This fragrant bloom is generally available all year round and can be bought in bunches of 10 or 50 stems.
