Phlox, (pronounced 'Flocks'), is regarded by many as a summer flower, but in reality, is available commercially for most of the year. Some varieties of phlox are available from the start of February to the end of December. Others like Phlox Snowwhite Fantasy is only available in May & June! Phlox is a genus of the Polemoniaceae family. Phlox is available in many varieties on the wholesale flower markets in lilac, white, pink, purple, red and some beautiful two tone varieties and is becoming increasingly popular for use in wedding flowers.
Phlox is wholesaled in wraps of 10 stems. The stem length can vary between 60 - 75cm depending on the grade required. The taller the stem, the stronger and better the quality will be.
