Using ecology to restore land and water
Woodland Phlox spreads slowly over time from stolons, forming a beautiful loose groundcover of fragrant pale violet flowers in the spring. Stems are sticky from glandular hairs and are upright with 1-2″ long leaves. The 5-petalled tubular flowers draw in pollinators such as butterflies, skippers, bumblebees, and moths. Woodland Phlox makes a wonderful addition to shade gardens and natural woodland areas with its showy blooms and clumping habit.
