woodland phlox

Woodland phlox is a spreading, native wildflower which forms mats of foliage with stems that get about 12 inches tall. The leaves are smaller versions of regular garden phlox leaves.

The flowers are a blue-purple color and there is a fragrance. And I found a few clumps this morning!!! They seemingly popped up overnight in a flower bed that is full of hostas and ferns.

This wildflower is very delicate looking. I have given you a close up shot above so you can see what the flowers look like. It’s really pretty and I am so pleased to have found it!
