Phlox subulata 'Scarlet Flame'
Finally, we have a red moss phlox. Deep pink flowers with red eyes appear between May and June.
Moss Phlox is a tough evergreen ground cover for hot, dry areas. Very bright spring flowers almost cover the foliage.
Phlox divaricata and stolonifera are New England natives. We carry only cultivers, which is why they don’t appear on our New England Woodlander list.
