Phlox subulata ‘Scarlet Flame’


Moss Phlox

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.410.050


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 selection is smothered by bright scarlet-red flowers, each with a tiny darker eye. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage a dense habit. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or in mixed containers. Clumps may be ripped apart and divided in early fall, after 3 to 4 years. Requires good drainage. Drought tolerant, once established.
