Description

Phlox divaricata 'May Breeze' produces showy, loose clusters of fragrant, pale blue, almost white, flowers on upright stems of narrow leaves. Also known as Woodland Phlox or Wild Blue Phlox, its early spring blooms are highly attractive to early butterflies and other pollinators. Plants spread via rhizomes to form colonies. Phlox 'May Breeze' is a great performing perennial that can take some sun, making it excellent as a filler between spring bulbs.

Phlox divaricata is native to the eastern 2/3 of the United States on into northeastern Canada. It is naturally found in rich deciduous woodland, along streambanks, and moist open areas near woodland paths.

Phlox divaricata 'May Breeze' prefers light open shade to part sun and moist, organic-rich soil. Shear after blooming to maintain fullness and reduce the chance for powdery mildew.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
