Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox | Phlox subulata is ideal for rock gardens, topping retaining walls, edging pathways, banks, and slopes - a spectacular ground cover. Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox grows vigorously forming dense spreading, spilling mounds covered in beautiful blue blossoms. Masses of blue flowers cover the top of this mat forming creeping phlox for a long period.
Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox creates a carpet of bright blue blossoms for bank plantings or rock gardens. Creeping Phlox is a vigorous green and attractive as a evergreen ground cover when not in bloom. Phlox is ideal for pots and hanging planters, too. This blue creeping phlox will spill over the edges of retaining walls for a graceful effect. The Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox is great to mix with red and white varieties. Phlox is 4 to 6" high, 12 to 18" wide. Plant phlox in full sun, blooms in Spring.
Garden Phlox ships SPRING ONLY for optimum planting.
To extend bloom time for your phlox follow this fertilize plan.
Fertilize phloxs the first time in early spring, just after new stem tips show at the soil's surface. Phlox needs a constant supply of nutrients to make strong, steady growth. Sprinkle a 9-12-12 timed-release fertilizer into the soil around the plants and then mulch over the area.
In late spring, after the plants have been in flower, fertilize again. Pull back the mulch, sprinkle the fertilizer onto the soil around the plants, and replace the mulch. Then water the plants thoroughly. This feeding will provide the plants with ample nutrients to support prolonged flowering. Prune spent blooms off plants to prevent them from burning the foliage.
