More Information

Description Love Phlox subulata? Then you'll enjoy Phlox x bifida 'Violet Pinwheels' even more with its extra vibrant blooms! 'Violet Pinwheels' makes a stunning addition to landscapes in need of a low-growing groundcover that can grow in difficult soils. Gravelly soil, we're talking about you. Bright violet blooms pop up on its soft, needle-like evergreen foliage in spring, creating a carpet-like mat that looks great on slopes or along pathways. Plant 'Violet Pinwheels' in a sunny spot with well-drained soil, and you'll be delighted when its star-shaped blooms attract butterflies each spring! Phlox x bifida came to us from Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden by crossing Phlox bifida and Phlox kelseyi, resulting in showier flower color, earlier bloom time, and larger flowers compared to classic creeping phlox. Sit back and enjoy this deer-resistant foliage all-year-round with little to no maintenance required! Details Botanical name: Phlox x bifida 'Violet Pinwheels'

Too early

We had a week of low freezing temperatures after the plants arrived. They were unwrapped and watered inside house for a week. But they still did not survive when planted outside.
