Phlox Family

It looks like a "Jacob's Ladder", which is a part of the phlox family. Maybe someone will know the scientific name per the area it was seen. There are a couple different Jacob's Ladder.

Re: Phlox Family

Thanks again. I couldn't have identified it without that first clue. You were right once again and it's impressive considering you didn't even consult any books.
