Plant details

A dwarf phlox, this needs woodland conditions humus-rich soil that never dries out in summer or becomes too wet in winter. In a border, the plants grow well in light, dappled shade between shrubs, and are valuable for their evergreen foliage and their lavender-blue flowers, each with a mauve eye, which are freely produced throughout late summer and early autumn. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
