Description

Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple' produces loose clusters of fragrant, purple-blue flowers on upright stems over creeping foliage. 'Sherwood Purple' is a vigorous cultivar that is long blooming. Its early spring blooms will attract queen bumble bees and other early pollinators. It is an excellent semi-evergreen perennial, spreading ground cover for woodland settings, creating attractive drifts of color when in bloom.

Phlox stolonifera is native to the eastern United States from Maine to Ohio and south along the Appalachians to Alabama and Georgia. It naturally occurs in deciduous woodlands, along stream banks and on shaded rocky slopes, mostly in the mountains.

Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple' prefers light shade and moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Bloom stems may be cut back after flowering to prevent self-sowing.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
