Phlox divaricata Wild Form

Phlox divaricata Wild Form

Woodland phlox is a terrific native wildflower, and this is a very nice selection with large lavender-blue, fragrant flowers. As always, this species thrives in not-too-shady woodland conditions with soil on the moist side. A foot or so tall, in the wild slowly spreads to for wide sheets. Spectacular when in full bloom in the spring, sometimes looks a little ratty later in the summer. If the foliage gets mildewed, whack it back to flush new growth. Zone 3

There has bee some discussion as to exactly what 'Chattahoochee' is, it appears to be hybrid in origin, and like so many widely cultivated plants more than one clone is in circulation these are slightly different from the form we grew years ago, but still very nice.____ZONE 4
