Louisiana phlox is a naturally occurring selection (or a possible interspecific hybrid) of Phlox divaricata (wild phlox). Phlox 'Louisiana' makes a compact evergreen 6" tall x 1' wide clump, smothered in early spring with 12" tall spikes topped in 0.75" violet purple (RHS 88B) fragrant flowers, each with a contrasting maroon eye...attractive to hummingbirds. For almost a month in early spring (provided the temperatures remain cool), a mass of Phlox 'Louisiana' turns the woodland garden into a magical Cajun paradise!
