Phlox divaricata - Sweet William
Sweet William (Phlox divaricata) is a long-lived, carefree perennial that grows from a shallow root system. It forms a loose mound of glossy green foliage 6" - 8" tall, and can be semi-evergreen in mild climates. Atop its mostly unbranched flowering stems rising above the foliage are loose clusters of sweetly fragrant, five-petalled tubular flowers that come in shades of blue from pale lavender to violet-blue, and occasionally pink or white. It can be used as a loose ground cover, but it does not grow dense enough to compete with most other weeds.
