Other Comments: Florida has a number of Phlox species, almost all found in forested settings. The common roadside species (Phlox drummondii) is not a Florida native (Texas) -- it is a North American native and not harmful to the ecology of Florida. Phlox can be either annual or perennial depending on species. Most grow as annuals.
