Nature Walk: Downy Phlox
“Downy phlox (Phlox pilosa) varies from pure white to a deep reddish pink. Like many other prairie plants, it does best with companions. Here a sedge is growing up within the plant. Companion plants may give needed support or the competition for root space, and nutrients may help control plant height. In any case, a prairie is a community of plants and animals all living together for mutual benefit.” — Carl Kurtz
