PHLOX DIVARICATA - PHLOX

Phlox Divaricata is also an herbaceous perennial and is from the polemoniaceae family. Likes to have partial to full shade. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Very tolerable to deer, drought, clay soil, and dry soil. The flowers are very showy and fragrant. Again it will grow best in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part to full shade. Phlox also prefers rich, moist, organic soil and likes a light summer mulch which helps retain moisture and keeps the roots cool. The woodland phlox is a spreading and native wildflower which forms a mat of foliage, which has stems that get 12 to 15 inches tall. You will see the forest in precious woods, fields and along some streams. Has a loose cluster of fragrant and tubular and lilac roses to blue flowers, hat has 5 flat petal lobes that are at the tip of the stem in the spring time. Very hairy and sticky stems and will form very large colonies over time when the leafy shoots spread on the ground.  If you cut back on the stems when the flowers appear, that will help with the mildew. Also, spider mites are issues, they show up more in hot and dry conditions, and you need also to pay attention to rabbits. Looks wonderful in your rock gardens if you have one and makes a great border plant. Will be in wild gardens also and natural areas.
