Description / Phlox 'Eye Shadow'

Phlox 'Eye Shadow' stands as a paragon of ground cover excellence, blending durability, floriferous beauty, and ease of management into one stunning package. As the spring season wanes, it ushers in a spectacular wave of vibrant rosy purple flowers, blooming so abundantly that the dark green foliage beneath becomes nearly concealed. Each blossom showcases an alluring spectrum from lavender to magenta, centered with a dark purple eye and accented by gold anthers for striking contrast. This purple phlox ground cover not only captivates the eye but also plays a crucial role in the ecosystem, attracting butterflies, bees, and other pollinators with its colorful display.

Ideal for adding a splash of low-lying beauty to pollinator gardens, 'Eye Shadow' thrives as a colorful border, bed filler, or expansive ground cover. This sun-loving perennial is perfectly suited for gritty, rocky soil, making it an exemplary choice for rough-and-tumble landscapes. It flourishes in full sun, emphasizing the importance of a growing location with good drainage to ensure its vitality.

Phlox 'Eye Shadow', also known as Phlox subulata 'Eye Shadow', requires minimal effort for maximum impact. Its vibrant rosy purple flowers, coupled with its adaptability to rock gardens and drained soil, underscore its must-have status for gardeners seeking both beauty and resilience. By following simple phlox planting guidelines, ensuring the root ball is well-placed in well-drained soil, gardeners will witness a transformation of their landscapes into a sea of purple flowers, enhancing the beauty and biodiversity of their outdoor spaces.

Whether you're drawn to its aesthetic appeal, its contribution to local wildlife, or its ruggedness, Phlox 'Eye Shadow' is an undeniable asset to any garden. It represents not just a plant, but a palette of nature's finest colors, seamlessly woven into the fabric of your garden.

If you are looking for a flowering ground cover or a pollinator-attracting, sweetly fragrant flower for your cottage garden, take a look at phlox. With the variety of plant forms, blooms styles, and flower colors, phlox will add beauty to your garden space.
