My eight year old daughter has been growing this plant since early July. I have an earlier discussion topic about this same plant. Please help us identify the specific plant variety.

The earlier discussion can be found here:

@wandeljw,
Common garden phlox (Phlox paniculata). It's small now, but it will get to be about 2-3 feet, and yes, it is a perennial:

@wandeljw,
JW,

I remember from your other thread that it's in the shade. It will do ok there (obviously) but it may reach for the sun.

@JPB,
It is in a partly sunny, partly shady area, JPB.

Did you notice that by listing this as a question (new feature), Greenwitch was given a credit for her answer?
