Also known as Wild Sweet William, Wild Blue Phlox is a favorite spring wildflower which gives bright splashes of color to the woodlands. Growing best in the dappled shade of the woodland borders and preferring well drained ground, you often see Blue Phlox decorating the edges of trails.
You might notice that these pictures are not all blue. That’s because Phlox divaricata is highly variable in its coloring ranging from pink to rose to purple to blue, even in areas of close proximity.
