We explore the feasibility of coherent control of excitonic dynamics in light harvesting complexes despite the open nature of these quantum systems. We establish feasible targets for phase and phase/amplitude control of the electronically excited state populations in the Fenna-Mathews-Olson (FMO) complex and analyze the robustness of this control.
