If you love the shimmering mat of color that comes with Blue Emerald Phlox, you'll love its pink sister. Pink Emerald Phlox grows to just six inches tall, so you'll enjoy a nice bit of texture on the ground. This phlox produces a fantastic display of hot-pink flowers, set atop a cushion of dark green, semi-evergreen needle-like leaves. You can clip the plants lightly, immediately after blooming, to encourage a bushy spreading habit. Love the look of both Blue Emerald and Pink Emerald? Try pairing the two colors to create a patchwork of hues for a breathtaking effect. This phlox looks fabulous in front borders, creeping over rock gardens, or set along a path.
