The flame flower transforms the garden into a sea of blossoms.

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 easy to care for

The Emerald Cushion Blue cushion phlox is one of the low-growing members of the flame flower family. In its native habitat, the flame flower grows mainly along forest 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 transform your garden into a sea of flowers in no time at all, without much effort or in-depth gardening knowledge. For a large carpet of small blue flowers you need about 12 plants per square metre. The phlox will spread quickly and grow into a continuous carpet without much care. Since Phlox Emerald Cushion Blue copes well with drought, the plants only need to be watered occasionally and no special fertilisation is necessary either. The flame flower thrives excellently in normal garden soil. The sunnier the location, the more luxuriantly the cushion phlox will flower.

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 over a wide 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 on natural stone walls. With its cushion-forming and overhanging growth, Phlox is also excellent for planting in containers and on balconies.

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 any garden style.

In a romantic cottage garden, the Emerald Cushion Blue phlox is just as effective as a ground cover as it is in English or Asian style gardens. The cushion phlox goes excellently with numerous planting partners. The delicate flowers look particularly good in combination with baby's breath or bellflowers.
