'Purple Beauty' Phlox subulata

Item #38029


Vigorous foliage blankets your garden floor quickly!

Tiny purple blooms add a pop of color!

Whether you have erosion issues, need to cover a patch of poor soil, or simply love the way groundcovers fill in bare space while helping retain soil moisture and tamp down weeds, Purple Beauty is the one you've been waiting for! This creeping phlox (Moss Pink) regales you with weeks of royal blooms in late spring, and offers fresh green foliage three seasons a year.

Just a few inches high, this groundhugger meanders around rocks and other plants in the garden to fill in space beautifully. The blooms, upturned and starry, are true purple and very bright, lasting for several weeks. Butterflies adore them, beginning the pollinator season in style in your sunny garden!

Give this groundcover plenty of sunshine, and pamper it the first season to get it established. After that it will be very low maintenance, a good choice for spring-blooming bulb gardens, poor dry banks, rock gardens, and rain gardens. It can tolerate drought, and is quite cold-hardy. Give it a good shearing after the flowers have passed, and your annual maintenance is finished!
