Plant Information

12" x 12". Easy to naturalize, low-care Woodland Phlox ‘Blue Moon’ shimmers with lilac-blue blooms for a month in early-to-mid spring. With intoxicating fragrance, this lovely native plant provides valuable early season nectar for hummingbirds, swallowtail butterflies, and other pollinators. ‘Blue Moon’ flourishes in bright shade with moist, rich, well-drained soil. Plant ‘Blue Moon’ with spring blooming bulbs – the foliage will offer support and hide the wilting bulb foliage. It gradually spreads by rhizomes and spreading stems that root at the nodes. To deter spreading, simply cut back the flowers as they fade and keep the plant trimmed up. The foliage is burgundy in winter, providing another season of interest.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
