Welcome back the growing season - as well as hummingbirds and pollinating insects - with this beautiful selection of our native woodland phlox. 'Blue Moon' boasts dreamy blue-lavender flowers with large, full petals that hover on graceful stems over a mass of tidy green foliage. This is one of the very earliest-to-bloom phlox, so not only satisfies the winter-weary gardener, but provides a vital food source for awakening and returning pollinators. Very memorable when planted in woodland gardens combined with spring ephemerals, or used as a mass planting under trees.
