Blue Emerald Creeping Phlox

Refreshing Color in the Spring

Creeping phlox makes a big impact when it blooms in early to mid spring. Blue Emerald's lavender-blue flowers look impressive when planted en masse or grouped with another color of creeping phlox. This easy-to-grow ground cover is ideal for planting in rock gardens, along garden edges or draping over garden walls. It forms a mat of semi-evergreen foliage that grows 4-6 in. tall. Thrives in poor soils. 2 plants cover 3 sq. ft. Grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-9.
