This non native wildflower is starting to bloom throughout the countryside.The dame’s rocket is similar to phlox, and many people confuse the two. Dames’ rocket flower has four petals, and phlox has five.The flowers have a wonderful odor, but the plant is considered an invasive species, and for good reason, since at this time of year it is everywhere.
