Mountain Phlox
Polemoniaceae

Native to Northern California, this phlox relative somewhat resembles annual phlox (Phlox drummondii), bearing heads of inch-wide, pink-tinged white or lavender-pink blossoms with yellow throats. Good cut flower. Plant grows to 2 ft. tall and 1 ft. wide. Sow seeds in fall or earliest spring. In cooler areas, needs little or no water for spring bloom; in warmer regions, give occasional irrigation.
