Phlox douglasii ‘Red Admiral’


Douglas Moss Phlox

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.410.040


There are many selections of Moss Phlox, all of them forming a low mound or cushion of dark green needle-like leaves, smothered by tiny flowers in late spring. This is a very compact variety, with a grand display of bright starry rose-red flowers. Good vigorous habit, and disease resistance. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage a dense habit. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or in alpine troughs and other containers. Clumps may be ripped apart and divided in early fall, after 3 to 4 years. Requires good drainage. Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit winner (1993).
