(8-12” tall x 6-12” wide) 'Chattahoochee' Woodland Phlox is a strong, lightly fragrant cultivar of our native woodland phlox that boasts clusters of light blue flowers with a deep violet-eye. It blooms mid-spring, just as woodland wildflowers and ephemerals are hitting their stride and other early spring stars such as Lenten Roses are coming to the end of their bloom. Once it has bloomed, it settles back into semi-dormancy without fuss or mess. The deep green foliage can be lightly trimmed to keep the habit tidy after bloom. 'Chattahoochee' Woodland Phlox will slowly spread through non-blooming stems that creep along the ground, rooting as they go. Plant in shade or partial shade in rich, moisture retentive soils that are not boggy. With good morning sun, bloom will be heavier. This maintenance-free native beauty can give your spring garden a beautiful, colorful boost while providing for those early pollinators! The flowers attract butterflies, especially tiger swallowtails, skippers, hummingbird clearwing and sphinx moths. Native to Eastern North America, this lovely woodland flower can be found in dappled shade in open woods, partially shaded meadows, and along stream banks from Quebec to Florida and west to Texas and the Rockies. Also called Wild Blue Phlox and Wild Sweet William. Plant with woodland wildflowers such as Trillium, Columbine, or Bloodroot, Hostas, Ferns, and more! Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit in 1993.
