Plant Features

Blue Emerald Phlox is a dazzling perennial that introduces a touch of cool color to any garden. This eye-catching ground cover exhibits vibrant emerald-green foliage and is decorated with a profusion of stunning blue flowers from spring to early summer, which attract bees and butterflies. The plant is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9.

Blue Emerald Phlox is easy to care for. It can withstand both full sun and partial shade, but it performs best in full sun. It requires regular watering, especially during dry periods. When fully grown, the plant achieves a height of 4-6 inches and a spread of up to 18 inches.

Garden Environments

  • Accent in borders or along pathways
  • Rock or cottage garden addition
  • Mass planting for a vibrant ground cover

This tough ground cover is also resistant to deer, largely free from diseases and pests, and moderately drought tolerant. Thus, if you're seeking a low-maintenance yet visually impactful plant for your garden, Blue Emerald Phlox is an excellent choice.

Companion Plants

Winter Care: During fall, it's recommended to trim back Blue Emerald Phlox to a height of about 2-3 inches. This helps protect the plant's roots from the cold. Apply mulch around the plants with 2-3 inches of organic matter to insulate the roots and prevent freezing. Blue Emerald Phlox can withstand most winter conditions, but in particularly harsh winters, covering the plants with a light layer of burlap or evergreen branches could provide extra protection.
