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'

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.

Fabulous Violet Pinwheels

Wish I'd gotten more, but they are so lovely! They will be really eye poppers when they fill in and spread. I adore these little guys! They are on the smallish side but, with time, I'm sure they'll fill out.

Pretty in Purple!

I love the Violet Pinwheels Creeping Phlox! Purple is my favorite color anyway so I enjoyed planting this beautiful plant! It arrived nice & hardy & started growing immediately following planting. It adds so much to our burm & I am looking forward to it spreading out & covering the burm with its' beauty!
