Phlox triovulata

Three Seed Phlox - Phlox triovulata
Just South of Hillsboro
New Mexico, USA

A scientific synonym of this species is Phlox nana glabella, this species is now split from Phlox nana.  BONAP does not recognize Phlox triovulata but does recognize Phlox nana.  The BONAP range map for Phlox nana is shown to the right.  The light green color indicates that the species is native to and not rare within the county indicated.  P. nana and P. triovulata are very similar and their systematics may be in dispute.  We follow Vascular Plants of the Gila.
