Phlox divaricata 'Blue Moon' (Woodland Phlox 'Blue Moon')
Also known as as Blue Phlox or Louisiana Phlox.
Woodland Phlox ‘Blue Moon’ is nativar marked by outstanding flower color and very full flower petals. Flowers are slightly fragrant. ‘Blue Moon’ creates a long-lived groundcover for shade or partial shade and medium moisture soils. It spreads slowly by rhizomes. It responds poorly to urban pollution, so it is best planted in a relatively sheltered location.
Woodland Phlox attracts butterflies, including swallowtails, gray hairstreaks, and western pygmy blues.
