Phlox subulata 'Blue Emerald' (3.5-inch pot)
Common name: Phlox-Creeping, Moss Pinks.
'Blue Emerald' has delicate lavender blue flowers which blanket the foliage in mid to late spring. Its profuse carpet of flowers creates a subtle swathe of color when in bloom. Creeping Phlox is a versatile, easy to grow groundcover which forms a carpet-like mat. Creeping phlox is a low-growing species which forms a carpet-like mat no taller than 6". This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, on slopes, and in flower borders.
Creeping phlox is a versatile, easy to grow groundcover for full sun. Gritty, neutral soils are preferred, and good drainage is essential. It's a good idea to shear this plant back and clean up any dead foliage in early summer, just after it's finished blooming. This will produce denser foliage and will encourage it to rebloom. Divisions can be made every few years in summer.

I had a great experience. I ordered 70 phlox plants out of state. They were delivered in great condition! I love my new plants. can’t wait to watch them spread.
The 3.5 inch pots arrived safely and they all look healthy! Planted them and they all seem to be doing well! The owner Mike is super helpful with questions. I’m a happy customer and I’ve already ordered more items from him!
PKG of plants arrived in great condition, plants are healthy and pretty. Can't wait to plant them. Thank you for helping beautify my yard.
I was a little skeptical about plants drying out in shipping, but they arrived in beautiful condition. They are thick and healthy! I love phlox!!
