Compact selection of our native woodland phlox featuring fragrant 5-petaled lavender-blue flowers held above semi-evergreen lance-shaped foliage. Blooms in April and May and spreads by shallow underground rhizomes and layered shoots to create a light ambling groundcover, politely popping up in small colorful patches. Thrives near stream banks and moist woodland meadows but will tolerate drier soils. Plant with Jack-in-the-Pulpit, lungwort and wild columbine for a spring show. Attracts long-tongued pollinators like bumblebees, swallowtails and sphinx moths. Not to be confused with the low-growing moss phlox, P. subulata, that creeps around old New England cemeteries.
Plant 12" apart in moist rich woodland soil with good airflow. Full shade to part sun. Z3. (2½" plug stock)

Herbaceous Perennial Plants
When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.
Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
