Plant details

A dense, mound-forming evergreen perennial that forms cushions of hairy, narrow, bright green leaves. Plants produce blue star-like flowers from late spring to early summer. It is ideal in rock gardens, as edging for a flower border, or in stone troughs. Moss phlox prefers full sun to partial shade and tolerates a range of soils. Dead head regularly to encourage extended bloom period.
