I don't think it's downy phlox, the leaves are much narrower than yours. Those leaves look even too wide for woodland phlox but it could be that. Are the stems and leaves hairy?

Nice, but unfamiliar to me. Maybe I should look into it.

Very nice mosaic/tapestry you've got going in that photo.

I'm thinking that I should add some Virginia bluebells...especially since I read that hummingbirds use it as a nectar plant.

It looks like Phlox divaricata, to me. One of my favorites.

I thought so too.

You do know Virginia bluebells multiplies quite rapidly to form dense colonies don't you?

I used to see them growing only in one park...and I guess they were large colonies, but I don't remember them crowding other things out. Thanks for letting me know though.

I think that may be Phlox stolonifera because of the rounded leaves.

Good point.

I'm not as familiar with P. stolonifera, but I have seen pictures.
