Spreading phlox (Phlox diffusa)
Spreading phlox (Phlox diffusa) is a perennial herb commonly found on sandy or rocky high elevation slopes. Research indicates that its flowers change from white to purple following pollination — a helpful (and beautiful) aid to insects in search of unpollinated flowers.
Spreading phlox (Phlox diffusa) with water drops. The flowers' light purple hue indicates that they have already been pollinated. Eldorado National Forest, Sierra Nevada, El Dorado County, California.
