Phlox divaricata? (I've never seen it in the flesh.) If so a native of N America.

Thanks Floral! That's it! It grows all over this area...I just often miss ids when they don't have their flowers open :) !

I`d say Phlox, but I thought P divaricarta is a low growing type, and rather spring flowering.

P amplifolia and P paniculata could both occur in light woodland condition. and there are other tall species that had been hybridized into the garden types.

Could be Phlox carolina, currently blooming in Georgia.

RE: unk 1

Not amplifolia (leaves are not right) but could be divaricata (sources I found said it can grow to 18 inches...so Linaria, could still be this one?) It could be divaricata, carolina or paniculata? Prob. carolina because of the blooming time and location. Thank-you everyone!

P. Divaricata blooms for us in late April/early May, so seems unlikely to me.

RE: unk 1

My id was only a suggestion as I've never seen it. Local suggestions are much more likely to be accurate.
