Try a spring blooming Phlox that behaves differently than the standard Phlox subulata. Unlike the standard Creeping Phlox, the members of this series do not spread aggressively, rather, they form a low, mounding habit of star-shaped flowers. These varieties also blooms a week or so later than Phlox subulata, great for extending the spring color of your garden. As an added bonus-although it prefers full sun, this Phlox will tolerate very light shade.
Plant with spring bulbs for a long-awaited splash of color in your garden. Late spring perennials like Amsonia 'Storm Cloud' or Nepeta 'Cat's Pajamas' will begin blooming as this Phlox is finishing.
'Purple Sprite' has bright purple flowers with a tiny white halo in the center.
