WILD BLUE PHLOX
A rare perennial herb of Florida, being found in slope forests, bluffs and calcareous hammocks of only four panhandle counties. More common throughout the range of central and eastern North America.
Pale lavender flowers are made up of five open, loose petals and a calyx of five linear lobes. The stamens do not extend beyond the opening of the corolla tube. Elliptic to lanceolate leaves are opposite, usually in four pairs along the stem.
