Raving Reviews Review by Kt | Zone: 8a
This lavender Phlox gets raving reviews from my neighbors every year. I used it as a border between my boxwoods and the sidewalk because I was tired of putting down mulch just to have it rain and spread into the sidewalk for constant sweeping and ultimately a never ending sloppy look. Not only does this plant require no maintenance if only fertilized in the early spring it is the first to literally explode overnight into thousands of lavender flowers while the rest of us are starving for spring. It is a beautiful surprise with no maintenance. Because it happens so quickly it seems as if I just seasonally installed it. If left alone it threatens to grow across the side walk on its own (and potentially across the street) so I simply weed whack it back 6 inches after blooming is over once, and leave it alone to bloom again. Throughout the winter it's a nice subtle green border which tolerates constant dog interaction from the busy neighborhood passersby. The neighbors ask me every year what that striking lavender plant is in front of my house each spring because it sits there so quietly during the winter and makes such a bang in the spring. If fertilized again it will bloom again after spring just so, so, so hardy. (Posted on 5/8/2011)
