Phlox subulata ‘Snowflake’


Moss Phlox

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.410.780


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 particularly excellent form, becoming a mound of snowy white flowers for several weeks. 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.
