Phlox divaricata ‘Blue Elf’

3 Photos


Phlox divaricata ‘Blue Elf’ is a compact selection of woodland phlox. This cultivar was not as prone to defoliate as other selections of Phlox divaricata, however, it is also not as robust of a plant. This is likely related to its compact size. Because it is less than half the size of other selections, ‘Blue Elf’ would likely be perfect for use in spring-flowering containers.
