Phlox 'Rose Sprite' Description

A twist on the ordinary phlox subulata, ‘Rose Sprite’ grows in a low, tidy mound instead of spreading out. Its star shaped flowers are a lovely shade of light purple and arrive a week or so later than other varieties, extending the flowering season nicely. This variety can handle a little more shade than others and looks nice when planted with spring flowering bulbs. As a native, it is pretty resilient and can adapt to slightly acidic, poor, or dry soils.

Special features: Attracts butterflies, cold hardy, low maintenance, fast-growing, heat tolerant, beneficial to pollinators, native
