Moss Phlox Characteristics
Moss Phlox are highly ornamental groundcover perennials with a profuse spring bloom. The best flowering occurs in full sun, but sun-dappled shade can be appreciated in hot climates. Moss Phlox can be tolerant of rocky and thin soils, which makes them an ideal choice for erosion control applications. Plants can spread via self seeding. Cutting back the flower stems can keep the plants looking tidy and promote more compact regrowth. A sparse rebloom may occur after being cut back.
Moss Phlox is more resistant to powdery mildew than other cultivars of the same species. Some insects and rabbits may munch on the leaves.
