Woodland Phlox (Phlox divaricata) is a seasonal interest plant with light purple blooms from mid- to late spring. They grow best in mesic soil in part sun to shade where they will grow up to 2 feet tall. They are well-suited for shaded banks and slopes where other low growing species are planted. Companion plants include Pennsylvania Sedge (Carex pensylvanica) and Foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia).
Consider cutting back post-bloom in June to prevent powdery mildew. Rabbits may consume some foliage.
