Quick Overview:

This spreading, low-growing, hybrid phlox is a cross between Phlox divaricata var. laphamii and Phlox pilosa. Stems typically grow 10-12″ tall. Loose clusters of slightly fragrant, tubular, pale lavender-blue flowers with maroon throats and five, flat, petal-like lobes appear at the stem tips in spring. A prolific bloomer. Lance-shaped to elliptic, shiny, dark green leaves (to 2″ long). Can form colonies over time as leafy shoots spread along the ground rooting at the nodes.

Description

Best grown in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prefers rich, moist, organic soils. Appreciates a light summer mulch which helps retain moisture and keep roots cool.
