Phlox 'Bedazzled Lavender' Description
It may be new on the market, but 'Bedazzled Lavender' phlox (Phlox hybrid) is destined for popularity! It's long blooming, easy care, sun-loving, and very colorful in spring.
Bedazzled Lavender is a hybrid spring-blooming phlox that's a mound of star-like lavender blooms, each with lighter halo in the center that is in turn dotted with deep purple. Its useful mounded habit makes them look like a purple pillow in the garden! It blooms a full week earlier than traditional creeping phlox and is much less finicky about soil, too.
Like other phlox, 'Bedazzled Lavender' thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Provide consistent soil moisture for the first year after planting so it can develop a good root system, but once established, it is highly drought tolerant.
Place in the front of the sun perennial border, plant in groupings, or intersperse throughout your beds color all summer long. Combine this hard working sun perennial with drought-proof sedums, fragrant coneflowers, or your favorite spring bulbs for an unforgettable display. This cushion-forming plant is also perfect for rock gardens!

Soil: Well-drained soil is important.
Light: Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South)
Water: consistent moisture during the first season, but drought tolerant once established. For the longest lasting blooms, avoid letting the plant get stressed while in flower.
Spacing: 15 - 18 inches
Fertilizing: A general purpose slow-acting granular fertilizer worked into the soil around the plants in the spring is sufficient for phlox for the season. Do not over-fertilize.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Leave foliage standing in winter, and clean up spent foliage in spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Thin half of the shoots when 6" tall in spring to allow better air circulation. This helps keep mildew at bay and encourages better blooming.
