In the wide open grassland areas, the plants fend for themselves. They are out in the sunlight all day if it is growing season.
Many of these plants can become large, but they are unable to provide food or shelter for anything else but themselves.
A downy phlox is a perrenial plant that can grow up to 50 cm or 20 inches in height. It is around the grassland area all spring.
Besides in the grasslands and other meadows, downy phlox's can be found in woods areas.
