This Phlox spreads by above-ground runners called "stolons". The plants can form large mats which are quite colorful when they are in bloom. The petals are more round than the blue phlox. I found these blooming along the Schoolhouse Gap trail in the Smokies in late April. Some of the flowers were a light mauve color.
Perennial
Where seen:Great Smokies NP, Frozen Head SP, Great Smoky Mountains NP
