Phlox Species seen in a park in Manhattan during visit in June,2017.

For Species id please

Most likely Phlox paniculata

These were tall plants seen in New York.
First time I saw such tall plants.

Yes, Phlox paniculata

Madam, these plants are very hardy and the flowers last for many days. 

Thanks … for the additional information.

I have seen some more in New Jersey and Atlanta.
…, if you are reviewing Phlox, I will post those as well.
Since I have so many pictures in my collection, I sometimes miss out on some of them.

Please Id this small shrubby ornamental. Flowers are pink and are formed in terminal inflorescences.  
Photos were taken in Sydney, Australia in Nov 2014.

Phlox paniculata

I could take some fotos of the bumble bee today as it was robbing nectar.

I think these should be Phlox paniculata cultivars

…, we can avoid specific ID if full details are not with us.

Last photograph is indicative of P. paniculata.

Going through some old, unidentified photos in this Lockdown period. I had referred to this earlier via Flower for Id – ID27102016SH. But couldn’t get the clue.  
Flower for Id
Location – Shillong
Date – October 2016

Flowers have resemblance to Brunfelsia. But leaves are not.

Thanks, … Yes, looks different from Brunfelsia

I thought Phlox paniculata

I thought of Phlox too.

Yesterday i was watching a  bumblebee on Phlox flowers in my garden. I wondered why it was moving around at the base of the flowers. It was robbing nektar by biting at the base of the flower. I knew about this behavior, had never observed though so far.
Phlox has many color varieties and is fragrant.

I think these should be Phlox paniculata cultivars

Difficult to determine the species without leaves

These appear to be from the same garden and time, as being posted by … at a time.

OK, Sir. In the same garden, both may ve flowering at the same time. P. paniculata is perennial. In Shimla, both start flowering at the same time in April. 




Sharing pictures of Phlox paniculata ‘John Fanick’ seen in the botanical garden in October, 2018.

Identified from the name written near the plant. 

Beautiful plants and clicks, …

Thanks … With proper sunlight, the pictures come reasonably well.

Had no time to look what I clicked then.
You find more and more plants and flowers as you look around.
It was a beautiful experience visiting the botanical garden.
