Phlox subulata 'Violet Pinwheels'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Vivid purple-blue flowers
  • Great colorful groundcover
  • Great along walkways or on slopes

The spreading, mounding habit and intense flower color make this Phlox a fantastic addition to any sunny landscape. The green mound of foliage is completely covered with violet-purple, star-shaped flowers. The flowers look almost like small pinwheels when blowing in the wind. A vigorous hybrid between two species native to the U.S.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, in well-drained soil. In hot Southern climates, provide some afternoon shade. Tolerates sandy, gravelly soils, and hot, dry exposures, once established. After blooming, cut stems back by half to maintain a compact form, and stimulate re-bloom.
