This groundcover Phlox is a hybrid that behaves similarly to Phlox subulata, but with a more intense, fantastic flower color than you would expect from the classic varieties. Violet purple flowers nearly glow with intensity when it is in bloom. Compared to ‘Purple Beauty’ (P. subulata), the flowers are slightly smaller, but a richer, more intense shade of purple. The notched, upturned petals look like tiny pinwheels, especially with movement from the wind.

This groundcover Phlox grows lower to the ground, spreads slowly, and is more restrained that varieties like ‘Purple Beauty’ or ‘Blue Emerald’. Perfect for rock gardens or the front of the border. From Jim Ault at Chicagoland Grows®.
