Moss phlox is a hardy and reliable perennial used mostly in rockeries and low walls, where it makes a fantastic cover of white, pink, red, purple, mauve or blue flowers in mid spring. Many varieties are evergreen. Many varieties are available in the market today and being quite similar they sometimes get difficult to differentiate among one another, yet each one has its tell.

Purple Beauty is one of the best breedings among moss phlox varieties. Its pastel violet flowers come out in such profusion that the evergreen, needle-like leaves become invisible for a couple of weeks from late April until mid to late May. It quickly forms a large and quite a compact cushion. Still, in order to eliminate bare, woody stems in the central part we recommend trimming it in early summer just after flowering.

Grow moss phlox in full sun and free-draining soil of any pH. Once established they take long periods of droughts. Mulching is not necessary but covering the soil around the main clump with weed control fabric is advisable to keep the area around the plant weed-free. It is very hardy to about -45°C (USDA zone 2).
