Showy spring perennials produce vibrant carpets of bloom in very early spring, right when we’re all starved for some color. Tolerates dry conditions once established. Perfect as an accent in a rock garden. Tumbles nicely over walls.
‘Scarlet Flame’ warms up spring with red, star-shaped flowers over creeping, needlelike, evergreen foliage.
‘Purple Beauty’ makes a luscious carpet of deep purple blooms in early spring.
‘Eye Carumba’ features medium pink flowers with a red eye. The 0.75″ blooms are notably larger than typical Phlox subulata.
‘Crimson Beauty’ sports a sea of rosy-red blooms.
‘Strawberries & Cream’ is a hybrid selected primarily for its color change and long bloom season. Masses of nearly white, with a light violet-pink blush, broad-petaled flowers appear mid-spring and last for weeks. As the flowers mature they become medium to dark pink-violet giving the plant a two-toned look. A slightly larger and more vigorous grower selected from a cross of P. subulata and P. kelseyi.
