Spring Bling™ 'Ruby Riot' Hybrid Spring Phlox | Proven Winners

Reddish pink flowers with darker eyes at the center.

These spring groundcovers take creeping Phlox to the next level of refinement and beauty. Beautifully mounded habits look better later into the spring season-you'll want to show off these beauties like your finest jewelry.

Compared to the MOUNTAINSIDE™ Series, these bloom earlier (depending on weather), have larger flowers and better flower coverage and form more of a mounding habit the first two years in the ground. Mature plants will spread more in the garden.
