These are the herbaceous perennials, not the dwarf alpine kinds. They provide good colour for quite a long period, and make good clumps quite quickly, but should be split before they get too large, to keep them vigorous.
Phlox paniculata 'Lilac Time' has lots of lovely scented violet flowers, and make a beautiful display.
