This beautiful native wildflower dresses rocky slopes across western North America with a showy parade of white and pink flowers. Perennial, mat forming and deeply tap rooted, spreading phlox grows at middle to high elevations throughout the Pacific Northwest. Prime displays can be observed from May – August depending on elevation, slope aspect and snowpack. To witness these marvels of Mother Nature in the wild, hike to the summit of Saddle Mountain in NW Oregon or enjoy a remote drive to the top of Burley Mountain in SW Washington.
