Blue Plox - Phlox divaricata

 


Blue Phlox, Woodland Phlox, Wild Blue Phlox as well as Wild Sweet William, is a species of perennial flower that is commonly found throughout a wide range of habitats in North America. Blue Phlox is often seen growing along streams and riverbeds, just as much as in the thick woodlands of the Midwest. It does well in gardens used as a cover for underbrush and as an addition to a wildflower type garden.
This particular type of woodland phlox is very fragrant, in a pleasant manner. Especially in the late spring and early summer months, when it reaches its initial bloom. Its petals are two to four centimeters in diameter, and each of the sprawled out five leaves joins into a thin tube at the flower head's center. Its colors are fitting for a spring garden, ranging in pastel hues of colors. Including light purple, blue-lavender, white, and pink. The leaves are fuzzy, and you will find their width just a hair wider on stems not holding blooms.

At the base of the flower's center tube, nectar is produced for only certain wildlife. This would be hummingbirds, butterflies, skippers, long-tongued bees, and moths because they are the only ones with a long enough tongue to reach the nectar in such a long and thin tube.
Often found in the wild woods and fields of the Midwest, It thrives best in humus-rich soil that is fertile and drained well but slightly moist. The Blue Phlox is a common wildflower and is not difficult to grow and maintain. It would also benefit well from the occasional fertilization and when placed in an area with good air circulation.
