There are many selections of Moss Phlox, all of them forming a low mound or cushion of dark green needle-like leaves, smothered by tiny flowers in late spring. This variety produces a showy display of bright rosy-red flowers and has a medium-fast growth rate. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or in mixed containers. Drought tolerant, once established.
