Imagine - your shade areas can become a sea of periwinkle bluish-purple in late spring and early summer. The best part about this colorful phlox is that it prefers shade, and is tolerant of drought once established in a well-drained location. It spreads rapidly to the places where it wants to grow and is an ideal woodland groundcover because it makes few demands. One important thing to note is when raking and cleaning up your beds in the spring, be careful not to rake up this plant, as it is shallow rooted. Otherwise, once established, it is one of those "plant and forget" plants, that surprise us with a mass of carefree color when we least expect it. Butterflies love it and it is native to North America. Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple'Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple'
