Description

Hi! I am an Emerald Blue Moss Phlox. I am best known for my stunning star shaped lavender flowers, and my needle-like emerald foliage that retains its color all year round. My name Blue Moss suits me very well, as my bright blue blooming ground cover does an excellent job of spreading across empty areas of the garden, resembling the dense coverage of moss. I have a few special requests to make sure I am happy and healthy - I like my soil to be very well drained, I prefer alkaline soils, and you'll want to keep an eye on me to make sure I am not wandering into different parts of your garden (I like to spread out and explore - but regular pruning will keep me in check!) My perfect home has some sun for me to bask in throughout the day, and since I am so tolerant of pollution, I love to be planted in the city!

Highlights

  • Low-maintenance groundcover plant with a spreading habit that forms a dense mat of evergreen foliage.
  • Vibrant, deep blue flowers with a star shape bloom in early spring, creating a stunning carpet of colour.
  • Attracts pollinators such as butterflies and bees to the garden, while also repelling deer and rabbits. Great for rock gardens, slopes, or as an edging plant.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply once a week, especially during dry spells
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged foliage and flowers regularly
  • Pruning: In season pruning: Pinch off spent blooms to encourage more flowers and promote bushier growth. End of season pruning: Trim back any dead or diseased foliage and remove any dead stems
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears. Avoid fertilizing during the summer months to prevent burning the plant

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
