Flox: Generalities

The name of the plant comes from the Latin term phlox, which means flame and which recalls the shape and colors of its flowers. In medieval times the knights, on the occasion of parties and receptions,
they used to adorn their clothes with Phlox flowers, flowers whose beauty and perfume turned out to be particularly appreciated by the Ladies. The storytellers of the time spoke of the custom of the knights leaving the flower to the woman with whom they had danced and celebrated throughout the evening. For this reason, the plant is the emblem of complicity and understanding.
