We are pleased to introduce a cute little seedling Phlox divaricata (Wild Phlox) that presented itself in our garden around 1992...along with about 10,000 other seedlings that year. We selected P. 'Blue Elf' for its tiny green leaves that form a small ground-hugging mat. In mid-April, the 6" wide mats are topped with short, 3-4" tall flower spikes of fragrant, light blue flowers. Phlox 'Blue Elf' is perfect for a special spot in the woodland rock garden but will get lost and overrun without a special site.
