'Blue Moon' is a lovely native Phlox groundcover featuring clouds of rich violet-blue blooms that float above green foliage. With fragrance to wake up your senses, it flowers in April May. Its a perfect addition to a rock garden or any shady spot where it can slowly naturalize. Provides early season pollen for hummingbirds and butterflies. (Phlox divaricata)
8-12" tall x 10-12" wide. Easy to naturalize, low-care ‘Blue Moon’ Woodland Phlox 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 – its foliage will offer support and hide the any wilting leaves on neighboring bulbs. It gradually multiplies 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.
Creeping Phlox is a favorite perennial groundcover in all growing regions. Cold hardy and heat tolerant, it creates a colorful carpet of low-growing, cheerful blooms that appear each spring atop a deep green mat of evergreen foliage. A rapid spreader, Creeping Phlox is masterful at filling spaces in between trees, rolling down gentle slopes or steep banks, and covering areas that are hard to care for with its solid swath of color. Very dependable and tolerant of many soil types. Deer resistant.
