Phlox subulata 'Emerald Blue'

Creeping Phlox, Moss Phlox, Mountain Phlox

Delightful plants ranging from creeping, shade-lovers to tall, sun-loving, easy-to-cut, flower border mainstays. All have dense clusters of blooms. Deadhead and thin to discourage mildew. Almost all are American natives -- the most well-known is Tall Phlox (Phlox paniculata). Many others are gaining popularity as gardeners use more natives. Available in containers. Check native plant catalogs for unusual varieties.
