Dark Blue Bloom on Sunny Groundcover
The Phlox ‘Emerald Blue’, Phlox subulata, is an ideal ground cover with dark blue flowers and a thick mat of semi-evergreen foliage. Emerald Blue may also be called creeping phlox or moss phlox.
Blooming from April to May, it has a plant height of 4-6” and a spread of 18-24”. It is a definite addition to any perennial garden.
‘Emerald Blue’ needs to be planted in a full sun area in well-drained soil. Use ‘Emerald Blue’ in rock gardens, as a spread over curbs and short retaining walls, or in difficult edges of dry streambeds.
Emerald Blue is deer resistant and it attracts butterflies. This plant can be described as dense, low-growing, mat forming and it spreads.
