Blue Wood Phlox- Native
Blue Wood Phlox is a native perennial plant. It is native to the eastern United States. It is great for most any shaded area that needs a pop of color. It forms as a spreading mat of foliage, with flowers held above. Small, narrow leaves, up to 2 inches long, with a nice medium green color. Small, up to 2 inch flowers bloom in abundance in the mid to late spring. The five petaled flowers have a light fragrance and are violet-blue in color. Great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.
Phlox divaricata grows to a height of 12 to 15 inches, with a similar spread. It can eventually spread over a larger area. It is recommended for USDA climate zones 3 to 8. Blue Wood Phlox does well in full to partial shade. It does well with average amounts of moisture in well drained soils. Once established it has good drought tolerance.
