One of the earliest blooming Spring Phlox, Bedazzled Lavender is sure to bedazzle you with its dozens and dozens of star shaped lavender flowers that literally blanket the foliage. A low, wide spreading perennial with a spring bloom, you will enjoy the first peeks of color of spring largely in part to this beautiful perennial. An improved hybrid introduction from Walters Garden in Michigan, gardeners everywhere will enjoy this lovely little spring bloomer.

Native to North America, Spring Phlox lends its hardiness to this cultivar, growing in Zones 4-8 with ease. Light lavender flowers with a lighter lavender ring and a dark purple star shaped center float above dark green foliage, if you can ever see the foliage. Low growing cushions of pure color will dominate your garden. Companion plant with Candytuft for a nice white counterpart to Bedazzled Lavender as they both bloom about the same time. Coastal gardeners will enjoy the salt tolerance of this perennial.

Bedazzled Lavender Phlox Care

Plant Bedazzled in full sun in gritty, slightly alkaline soil for best performance. Water regularly until established, then only during extended dry periods as this is a low water usage plant. Preferring a soil pH in the range of 5.8 to 6.5 for optimal nutrient take up, Spring Phlox generally does not need fertilizer. Gardeners would be better suited to amending soil at time of planting with some well composted organic material. Plants will go dormant in summer and fall and will return with vigor from the roots in early spring.

Deadheading is not needed, but a late spring shearing may bring a second flush of blooms depending on the heat level of summer months. At any rate, the shearing will promote greater branching, making a more compact bushy habit and setting the stage for even more flowers in the spring, if that is even possible. Winter protection should entail applying a good quality mulch to the root zone for harsh winter protection.

Bedazzled Lavender Phlox Spacing

Space your plants about 32 to 38 inches apart. Plant diseases are usually not a problem as these hardy spring perennials are not prone to powdery mildew, but they grow to only 8 inches tall and spread out a whopping 38 inches wide, so they are going to need some room. Use these lovely spring bloomers as a ground cover with spring flower benefits. They look best in the foreground of garden beds due to their short but wide growth habit.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
