The flame flower transforms the garden into a sea of flowers
The Emerald Cushion Blue carpet phlox belongs to the flame flower family. Originally from the USA, this cushion perennial is an undemanding and uncomplicated ground cover that delights with its dense and lush carpet of flowers from April to June
Undemanding and low-maintenance
The Emerald Cushion Blue cushion phlox is one of the low-growing members of the flame flower family. In its native habitat, the flameflower grows mainly in woodland edges and transforms the landscape into a sea of small star-shaped flowers
Create a dense carpet of flowers
Cushion phlox Emerald Cushion Blue is one of those flowering plants that require little work. With the flame flower, you can turn your garden into a sea of flowers in no time at all, without much effort or in-depth horticultural knowledge. For a large carpet of small blue flowers you will need about 12 plants per square metre. The phlox will spread quickly and without much care and grow into a cohesive carpet. As Phlox Emerald Cushion Blue copes well with drought, the plants only need occasional watering and no special fertilisation is necessary. The flame flower thrives excellently in normal garden soil. The sunnier the location, the more profusely the phlox will bloom.
Phlox is not only suitable for planting in rock gardens
Phlox Emerald Cushion Blue is a typical rock garden plant. But the blue flame flower is a ground-covering species that spreads quickly and is versatile. The blue phlox is just as suitable for edging borders as it is for planting to cover a whole area. The flame flower not only looks its best in the rock garden, but also unfolds its full beauty as a slope planting or as a plant element in colourful flower beds. The Phlox Subulata is just as suitable for planting as a border for natural stone walls. With its cushion-forming and overhanging growth, Phlox can also be used as an excellent border and balcony planting.
The small star-shaped flowers of the flame flower are of filigree beauty and their multitude makes them a real eye-catcher in any garden. Phlox as a ground cover is therefore suitable as a design element for almost every garden style.
The Emerald Cushion Blue phlox is just as effective as a ground cover in a romantic cottage garden as it is in English or Asian style gardens. The cushion phlox is an excellent match for many planting partners. The filigree flowers look particularly good in combination with baby's breath or bellflowers.
