Plant Description

Originally found in the mountains of Parksville Beach, Tennessee, by Tony Avent, this phlox is low-growing and vigorous growing only to about 6 inches tall with bright purple-pink fragrant flowers in mid to late spring. It makes a nice ground cover in good fertile soil in the shade and would look great with Dwarf Crested Iris, Foamflower, Sedges, and Celandine Poppy. Sheer after flowering to invigorate clumps.
