Plant Description

Running rampant in rich soil in the mountainous woods from southern Pennsylvania and Ohio, to Georgia, Phlox stolonifera forms large drifts of blues, lavenders, pinks, and all shades in between in mid-spring. Interspersed with Foamflowers, Anemones, Celandine Poppies, and ferns, it's truly a breathtaking sight. The leafy mats nearly hug the ground and flowers stems are about 6 inches tall. Flowers are lavender-blue with tiny orange eyes.
