Phlox divaricata...

I don't think it gets much better than this. Blue and fragrant... This was another one of those plants that attracted me because it was fragrant. Well, that, and blue. There is a picture of it in a previous post, but it has since filled out.

This Blue Phlox is planted at a corner of the east end of my house, but I have great plans to divide it and spread it throughout the hydrangea bed that I am planning to make under the laurel oak near the seating area I am going to build. I think it will be quite stunning to have vast amounts of clouds of fragrant, blue flowers in spring, inter-planted with, of course, large quantities of Muscari - another blue, fragrant flower.

(The spot of yellow is a Primrose that that blooms each spring.)

This morning, Julie picked a small bouquet of it for me. It is sitting on my vanity table, scenting my bedroom. Ah, the pleasures of fragrant ... and blue ... flowers.

Have a beautiful day!

I heartily agree!

With the name of your blog you must love this time of year.

Beatiful color you got on the flox. Is it from seeds or did you get a plant?

Hi, Rihane, Yes, I love to see all the Muscari - and everything else blooming! :) I bought the phlox as a plant 3 or 4 years ago. It is slowly spreading. I just LOVE the color!
