For richness of colour and duration of bloom there are fewplants that can rival either the annual or perennial Phlox. The
trailing kinds are very suitable for small pots or rock-work, C.
Drummondi for beds, and the French perennials, P. Decussata, for
borders. A rich, loamy soil suits them best, and they must never
lack moisture. They are easily raised in spring from seed, and the
perennials may be increased by cuttings placed under glass, or by
division. Flower in July. Height, 1 ft. to 2 ft.
