A very fragrant native woodland phlox with powder-blue flowers in spring.

Reaching only 1 foot tall, it can spread to almost 2 feet and makes an attractive groundcover under shrubs or planted with other spring-blooming wildflowers.

Leaves are semi-evergreen and hairy; stems root along their length. The blue flowers are salverform with petal lobes.

This plant attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
