Creeping Phlox Usher in Spring
The daring rosy-purple flowers with sparkling dark purple eyes sport an ‘Eye Shadow’ trend that won’t go out of style. The carpet of foliage is concealed in spring by the vibrant flowers. The spring flowers of Phlox Eye Shadow is a welcome sight to gardeners, but even more so for hibernating and returning pollinators that are becoming more active with the warmer temperatures. Creeping Phlox are a classic harbinger of spring. They will cascade beautifully over a rock wall or down a slope. With their mid-spring blooms, they pair nicely with flowering bulbs like Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths.

Phlox General Information

Phlox subulata are low-growing, showy plants suitable for cascading over walls or down a slope. Spreads rapidly to cover any open sunny spot. In rich soil, as much as 2' across, completely covered with flowers in mid-spring. Prefers sandy soil. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Phlox Plant Care

No special care needed. Can be trimmed back after flowering to the low green foliage if lush new growth is needed. No need to prune in fall, clean-up winter damage in spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
