Violet Pinwheels Phlox

Like no phlox you've ever seen

Violet Pinwheels Phlox

Like no phlox you've ever seen
This phlox produces upturned petals that look like they could take flight with a good breeze, hence the "violet pinwheels" cultivar name. The ¾" wide flowers open a vivid purple color and age to bright violet—rare colors among moss Phlox. The flowers produced in late March or April can last up to 5-6 weeks, and the low, slowly spreading mounds of dark green, needle-like foliage are soft to the touch. In our trials, two-year-old plants have grown to 18" wide by 4" tall and have been evergreen year round. A perfect marriage of Eastern and Western phlox, it combines beauty and unique flower form with adaptability to heat, cold, and a variety of soils. It is best grown in full sun on well-drained soils with some supplemental water during drought. Grow this vibrant selection in a rock garden, on slopes, over a wall or berm, or at the front of the sunny border. Developed by Dr. Jim Ault at Chicago Botanic Garden in 2008.
