Eye Shadow Moss Phlox is a spring-flowering groundcover, producing a thick carpet of exploding color loaded with vibrant, cheerful flowers. Bright green, needle-like foliage is completely covered in violet-purple petite flowers with a dark purple eye beginning in late April. Eye Shadow Moss Phlox attracts early-season pollinators seeking its rich nectar when it flowers in early through late spring.
With its vigorous habit and easy maintenance care, this low-growing colorful groundcover will exceed your garden expectations. Eye Shadow Moss Phlox grows to 6” in height but is capable of easily spreading to at least 20 inches. This is an extremely hardy perennial groundcover, with cold hardiness in Zones 2 - 9.
Eye Shadow Moss Phlox Care
Plant Eye Shadow Moss Phlox in a partial to full sun location, in soil that is rich in organic matter and well-draining. Moss Phlox prefers to be consistently, lightly moist.
Eye Shadow is excellent in large containers that allow room for it to spread. Plants can be sheared back by 1/2 after they are finished flowering to encourage reblooming and dense foliage.
Eye Shadow Moss Phlox Spacing
Eye Shadow Moss Phlox can be tucked in a corner to add a bright splash of spring color. It is also lovely spilling over slopes, and is excellent in rock gardens and mixed garden borders. For naturalizing, plant multiple starts in staggered rows, allowing at least 18 inches of space between plants to accommodate their mature size.
