More Information

Description ‘Emerald Blue' creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) delightfully welcomes spring with lush foliage and hundreds of blooms. This ground cover forms a low-growing carpet that spreads vigorously and adds color year-round. The flowers are so abundant in the spring; you can barely see the foliage underneath! Delicate, star-shaped blue flowers are fragrant and adored by butterflies. Though the flowers look delicate, this plant certainly is not! It's highly adaptable and able to thrive in challenging sites, including gravelly soil. Plus, it's unbothered by deer. Try planting in rocky areas, on steep slopes, or as a border, and it won't disappoint! Details Botanical name: Phlox subulata 'Blue Emerald'
Common name: Creeping phlox
Zone: 3 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 4-6" x 24"
Flower color: Blue
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Late spring and early summer
Uses: Alpine and rock, Container gardening, Edging, Ground cover, Rock garden, Small spaces
How To Grow Soil: Well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Plants prefer soil with a slightly acid to neutral pH.
Light: Phlox grows best in sun (> 6 hours sun).
Water: Low to Average.
Spacing: 18" apart.
Fertilizing: Generally unnecessary, but a slow-release granular fertilizer worked into the soil around the plants in the spring is sufficient.
Winterizing: No special care is needed. Leave foliage standing in winter, and clean up spent foliage in spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: Cut back stems after flowering by 1/2. This will maintain dense growth and attractive habit for the summer months. This will also encourage some fall rebloom. Cut out any brown stems.

Beautiful new addition for my rock landscape

I ordered last year and they arrived in a dormant stage since their season had passed but I immediately planted them and they have bloomed beautifully this year and I have ordered more.

Incredible for patio borders

I purchased several of these for a border coverage for my patio beds, and they are simply "Fantastic". I live near Indianapolis, and just wish they bloomed year round. Definitely worth the purchase!

Hi Chuck, thank you for sharing a picture of your gorgeous landscape with us! We're so glad to hear that you're happy with your Phlox. Happy Gardening!

Arrived healthy and thriving

I've bought 25 phlox and astilbes in three batches. Each and every plant of several varieties has arrived healthy, full leafed and thriving. I urge new gardeners to pay attention to the amount of sunlight required for each different plant. Great Garden's staff are wonderful about answering questions. Basic care is essential. Take the plants out of packaging right a way and water them immediately. These plants are all beautiful. I'm very excited.

Hi Susan! Thank you for your kind works and encouragement to other gardeners. We're always here to help by email or phone! Happy Gardening!

All died within a week or so

Almost all the phlox died within a couple weeks of planting. I have two that are still hanging on but look terrible. Over $200 down the drain on these.
