Phlox divaricata 'Blue Moon'

Blue Moon woodland phlox

Sweet William is a fragrant, showy species of woodland phlox. Foliage serves as groundcover throughout the growing season, but stems laden with majorly fragrant blue flowers erupt in spring. 'Blue Moon' is a small-statured selection made by Willim Cullina from plants already growing at Garden in the Woods. Plant in rock gardens, along stream and pond banks, or as a groundcover in woodland gardens, where in spring it will serve up a banquet to the senses and to local pollinators!
