Phlox - Atropurpurea

The Phlox Atropurpurea, 'Phlox subulata', is an ideal ground cover with masses of tiny wine-red flowers and a thick mat of semi-evergreen foliage. Blooming from April to May, it has a plant height of 4-6” and a spread of 12-18”. This low growing plant emerges like a carpet and the tiny, bright red flowers have a honey aroma. ‘Atropurpurea’ is a bright and colorful addition for that special area in your yard.


‘Atropurpurea’ needs to be planted in a full sun area in well-drained soil. Use ‘Atropurpurea’ in rock gardens, as a spread over curbs and short retaining walls, or in difficult edges of dry streambeds.


Phlox plants, like ‘Atropurpurea, have become the backbone of summer perennial gardens for many gardeners. If phlox plants are stressed, they may develop some mildew issues so keep the location cool, slightly shaded and provide humus moist soil.


The sheer color of these flowers is amazing and what a site the wine-red colored flowers can create. Make sure you order several for a magnificent carpet of color in a sunny location. ‘Atropurpurea’ is one of the easiest perennials to grow…the best reason for you to plant this phlox!
