Phlox divaricata

Common name: Wild Blue Phlox

Native plant

Wild Blue Phlox is a spring flower often found along streams and in open woods.  It forms clumps 12 inches tall covered with delicate blue-lavender flowers. This plant is spectacular as a mass in an open woodland, perfect for the border of a shade garden, or naturalized in sweeps at the base of large trees.  Woodland phlox prefers moist, rich, well-drained soil and high open shade. It can tolerate sunny conditions with moisture but will go dormant in drought conditions. Wild blue phlox is great when used as a showy ground cover. It has extremely fragrant flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
