A delightful spring blooming eastern North American native for shade, it carpets the shady border with pale blue. A low growing carpet of fragrant blooms with burgundy winter foliage makes this wild sweet william most appealing. Woodland phlox will spread and fill in around bulbs or perennials that are late to emerge, like hosta. A selection that appeared at the London Grove Friends Meeting House plant sale.
