Phlox divaricata ‘Manita’

Woodland Phlox

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.410.420

Woodland Phlox is perfect for a moist shady border, putting on a showy mid-spring display. This selection has clusters of fragrant white flowers with an indigo eye, over a low spreading mound of bright green foliage. Spreads to form a small patch, easily divided in early autumn. Will usually tolerate full sun conditions in cool summer regions. Terrific when combined with spring blooming bulbs, especially Narcissus. Selected by North Creek Nurseries in Pennsylvania, this has particularly large blooms and excellent vigour.
