Looking for a spring groundcover that can withstand the dryness of a rock garden? Enter Rocky Road Phlox! These alpine plants are used to growing on slopes, so you know they can take the drought. With bright, vibrant colors, these will certainly be the belles of the garden in springtime! Compared to Phlox subulata, these have a more compressed growth habit and spread more slowly in the landscape, especially the first year in the ground. Look for more colors in the future!

Magenta purple flowers have a small, darker eye.
