Phlox Pink Profusion

Larger, more rounded petals make for a softer look on this perfectly mounded perennial. Deep pink flowers make for a lovely spring flowering mat.

With its vibrantly colored and super-sized flowers, Phlox  ‘Pink Profusion’ is an eye-catcher in the spring garden. Vibrant purple-pink flowers that are more than 1 inch wide cloak the plants for four to five weeks commencing in mid- to late April.

This selection holds court in spring with flowers that are not only larger than all other Phlox × procumbens selections blooming at the same time, but are also conspicuous for their vibrant purple-pink petals and dramatic red-purple striae to the center, which is ringed by a white halo. Regal and showy indeed! The remainder of the growing season, the plants settle into quiet, low clumps of green shoots cloaked in soft, small leaves, neither conspicuous or objectionable in any way. Use this striking selection in full sun to partial shade toward the front of the perennial border, in a mesic rock garden, on slopes, in the open woodland garden, and in similar sites. Mass it for a spring floral display. Ensure that it has some winter protection and is not grown either too dry or on poorly drained, wet soils.
