There are many selections of Moss Phlox, a garden favourite, all of them forming a low mound or cushion of dark green needle-like leaves, smothered by flowers in late spring. This variety produces a showy display of light purple, star-shaped flowers. 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.
