Description

Wild Blue Phlox (scientific name Phlox divaricata) is a beautiful flower great for a variety of garden setups

These semi-evergreen perennials can be added into almost any arrangement due to their lovely colors and easy maintenance. These flowers are composed of five pastel-colored petals attached to a thin tube-like stem and hairy leaves. Inside these tubes is a small amount of sweet-smelling nectar. This makes the flowers great for attracting butterflies, which are their primary pollinators.

Wild Blue Phlox are also quite attractive to bees even if they cannot reach the nectar, though they can still collect and distribute pollen around the mouth of the tube

The most common colors for wild "blue" phlox to appear as are blue-lavender, white, pink, and light purple. The Phlox divaricata is also incapable of self-pollination, meaning it has the possibility of expressing traits from other species of flowers used during the pollination. On top of that, there are two recognized subspecies of the plant known as ssp. divaricata and ssp. laphamii, identified by the notch or lack of notch in their petals, respectively.

The most common states to find the wild blue phlox in are from Pennsylvania and Ohio all the way down to Georgia. Some can also be located in Ontario and Quebec in Canada.

Wild Blue Phlox typical habitats include woods and fields, and their usual bloom time is from March to May

Additionally, wild blue phlox are great for covering ground and soil stabilization. Their high tolerance for poor quality soil means they can be planted anywhere with a warm climate, though they prefer moist, well-drained soil. They're also naturally pest resistant and grow well in shade or partially shaded environments but require decent airflow to avoid growing mildew.

When arranging, they pair best with other flowers like wild columbine, as well as non-flowers like Christmas fern, marginal wood fern, or plantain leaf sedge.
