‘Purple Sprite Phlox’ makes you think of those wonderful creatures in a mythical forest! A low growing phlox smothered with bright, purple flowers. This new hybrid phlox blooms a week later than Phlox subulata, the groundcover phlox that everyone knows. ‘Purple Sprite’ is short, growing only 6-8 inches tall and 18-22 inches wide. For those that live in salt prone areas, this phlox is salt tolerant!

Phlox are native to North America and bees and butterflies love it! ‘Purple Sprite’ is a late spring bloomer and is hardy from Zone 3a- 8b. This is a great plant to fill that blank space in the garden or use in a pollinator garden for it is sure to attract pollinators with that bright color. And even after the flowers fade, the bright, green foliage is always attractive in the garden.

Purple Sprite Phlox Care

‘Purple Sprite’ tolerates partial shade but blooms best in full sun. While water needs are just average, it does require an average but well-draining soil. It also helps if the soil is acidic to neutral. This phlox is very low maintenance once established.

Purple Sprite Phlox Spacing

This would be an outstanding phlox planted en masse in the landscape, sure to stop traffic and have onlookers oooooh and aahhh. It can also be used as a border in the garden, in perennial beds or just pop it in where late spring bulbs will bloom and can complement each other!

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.
