The blue woodland phlox is a low-lying plant native to Pennsylvania and Ohio. Once well established, they can be very drought tolerant and thrive well in shaded areas. As the name implies, they have powder-blue, fragrant flowers, which bloom from early spring through early summer, providing a valuable nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies. What the blue woodland phlox lack in height, it makes up for in spread, making it a highly effective plant for extensive ground cover.
