Phlox, Woodland (Phlox divaricata)
Phlox, Woodland Plant FeaturesWoodland phlox is a delightful spring-blooming North American-native wildflower that produces fragrant clusters of lavender, purple, blue, or white in early spring.

Woodland phlox grows 10 to 12 inches tall and wide and thrives in shady and partially shady locations. Butterflies also enjoy an early feast of woodland phlox flowers. Hardy from zones 3-8.
