Description / 'Woodlander Lilac' Woodland Phlox

Phlox 'Woodlander Lilac', part of the innovative Woodlander Series, represents a new era in perennial phlox breeding. As a stunning example of woodland phlox, it showcases an early spring spectacle with its profuse and continuous flowering. This creeping phlox variety dazzles with enormous clusters of extra-large blooms, outshining the typical subulata species with a vibrant carpet of 5-petaled flowers in captivating shades of lilac. Adored by bees and butterflies, Phlox 'Woodlander Lilac' enhances any garden with its dynamic color and life.

This herbaceous plant boasts a mounded and spreading habit, featuring linear to awl-shaped leaves that quickly fill in empty spaces, making it an ideal ground cover. When massed or grouped in mixed beds, borders, or rock gardens, Phlox 'Woodlander Lilac' creates a stunning visual impact. Its adaptability also extends to understory plantings, where it provides beautiful accents with its clusters of slightly fragrant flowers.

Phlox 'Woodlander Lilac' thrives in a variety of conditions, from full sun to partial shade, and benefits from a period of vernalization for optimal flowering. This variety, originating from Eastern North America, is not only cold hardy but also deer resistant, making it a versatile choice for gardeners. While it's adaptable to drained soils and tolerates conditions like powdery mildew and spider mites better than some, cutting back stems after flowering can help combat mildew, ensuring the plant remains healthy and vibrant.

Incorporating Phlox 'Woodlander Lilac' into your native plant garden or naturalized areas not only brings aesthetic beauty with its violet-blue flowers but also contributes to the ecosystem. As a part of the woodland phlox family, it's a testament to the beauty and resilience of native Eastern North American flora.

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.
