This Spring Blue Moss Phlox is a wonderful perennial that will grow year after year, returning its bright blue, and purple hues to the landscape. Creeping in nature, it will spread during the season. For this reason, it makes a great retaining wall border perennial. For a pop of blue and purple during the late spring, and an evergreen ground cover the rest of the year, consider the addition of this creeping phlox variety.

This native phlox variety is extremely versatile in nature. It can be planted anywhere from raised beds, to a rock garden. It has a wonderful form to it, and after some time and growth provides a lovely fall-over feature to any container, raised bed, or wall. To add to the positive list of attributes it’s drought tolerant, and low maintenance. This phlox is a friend to pollinators and it attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and bees.

Spring Blue Moss Phlox Care

This perennial thrives in hardiness zones three through eight. It is flexible as far as sunlight is concerned, and prefers full sun, partial sun, or partial shade. It leans more on the side of water enjoyment, and prefers moist and well drained soil. It requires an average amount of water, so if a drought is observed, and especially if planted in a container it will require extra water. 

Generally this phlox doesn’t need to be deadheaded, or pruned. It acts as a ground cover, blooming in the spring. Once the blooms are spent, they will fall off and the plant will remain evergreen. Trimming would only be necessary if you wish to maintain shape or length, but this could compromise its spillover effect.

Spring Blue Moss Phlox Spacing

The Spring Blue Moss Phlox only reaches four to six inches tall. However, it grows outward so this plant should be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart from others.

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).

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.
