Plumbaginaceae
The Leadwort Family
Plantae
This is a family of about 560 species in 10 genera found all over the world. They are annual or perennial herbs, shrubs and climbers. The type plant, Plumbago, the Cape Leadwort, has large enough flowers for the characteristics to be visible, but many species in temperate regions, e.g. Thrift (Armeria) and Sea Lavender (Limonium), have small flowers in dense clusters. They are generally grown for garden decoration or as cut flowers, either fresh or dried, and medicinal extracts are obtained from some species.

A calyx with five joined sepals.

Looks like a type of Phlox, maybe Phlox divaricata.
