Description

The Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox has amazing purplish blue color that really pops in your landscape. This native groundcover offers distinctive beauty and year-round interest that is hard to beat!

Lavender blue flowers smother this pretty and petite phlox in spring. This evergreen shrub is lush and deep green with petite, slender leaves. This variety is also known as moss phlox as the foliage has a resemblance to moss. Emerald Blue Phlox reaches a mere 6 inches tall at maturity, but it spreads to 2 feet wide. This perennial is vigorous and low maintenance.

Avoid mowing! Plant creeping phlox instead of grass in hard to mow areas.

Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox are lovely groundcovers. These plants have a low, spreading habit that becomes mat-like over time. Plant in mixed beds, rock, woodland, and cottage gardens, containers, low walls, and next to walkways. This phlox cascades like a waterfall over edges and down slopes if you like or trim them for a tight, clean edging. Plant in mass for a cool pop of color and a unique grass substitute.

Phlox thrive in full sun and prefer moist, well-drained soil. Creeping Phlox tolerate sandy and rocky soils. Once established, Phlox are drought tolerant. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring for best results. Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and extend bloom time. Phlox are deer resistant and salt, pollution, and erosion tolerant.

*Do not over water the Creeping Phlox due to its sensitivity to water.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, air circulation, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Phlox don't tend to have a lot of issues with pests of disease, but because they grow at ground level there are a couple things to watch out for. Mites can be treated naturally with neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. To determine if mites are an issue look for the foliage to be dull and webbing to appear. Phlox can, on occasion, encounter fungal issues especially when moisture is high and air circulation is low. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire plant must be coated in order for this method to be effective. Water at the base of this plant to avoid fungal disease on the leaves. For severe fungal infections treat with a fungicide.

These plants have a low, spreading habit that become mat-like over time.  Plant in mixed beds, rock, woodland, and cottage gardens, containers, low walls, and next to walkways, similar to the Snow-n-Summer Asiatic Jasmine.

Fantastic

Most of my order was received on time and in great shape. Packing of the plants for shipment was first rate. Due to an apparent FedEx issue, days later, part of the shipment had still not reached us. While this was not a PlantingTree issue, they reshiped the remaining order to us with a bit of a bonus.

Exactly what I wanted

To be honest, the quality was above what I expected. I was very concerned about my plants being damaged since my order was large (15 in total). All of my order came together and nothing was damaged at all. Everything was very healthy looking. I was also surprised with how quickly everything arrived. My plants came 3 days after I placed my order. This was my first time ordering plants online. I will order from this site in the future for sure!

Overall, a really good experience. My plants arrived neatly secured and in sturdy boxes. Even with the slow down in delivery service, I received my plants within a normal delivery. Every attempt was made to get my plants within the quoted time. I will purchase again and again!! So pleased with the quality and variety. Thank you, Planting Tree Team
