Phlox stolonifera ‘Sherwood Purple’

Summary

Phlox stolonifera ‘Sherwood Purple’ was one of the top-performing selections of creeping phlox in our trial. The plants were very vigorous and quickly created a dense mat of foliage. Powdery mildew was observed during the summer months, but it only caused mild dieback during the third year of the trial. Even then, the plants quickly mended the holes within a few weeks.
