PHLOX DIVARICATA London Grove- Woodland Phlox - Wild Sweet William - Short 12" Plant 16" apart. Zone 3-8. Foliage of this woodlander forms a creeping mat of loosely entwined stems with semi-evergreen oblong leaves. Excellent when combined with late spring flowering bulbs, or as an underplanting to larger perennials. A great plant for naturalizing or for a shady border. Fragrant, compact, and a light, bright blue. Simply glows. The foliage turns burgundy into fall and winter.


General Information:
Prefers a moist soil, groundcover, fragrant
