Woodland Phlox

The Woodland Phlox is a perennial, growing about 1-1.5 inches tall, with purplish flowers. Although Woodland Phlox is an early Spring bloom, this year, because of the warmer winters, they have started appearing even earlier than usual. The photo above was taken on 24 February 2012, in northern Virginia. They were in full bloom. A week later the blooms have started to wither, as the flowers become fruits. [Nikon S8200, f/3.5 @ 1/800 sec, ISO 800]
