Creeping Phlox Midnight - Zaluzianskya capensis

Creeping Phlox is a fragrant groundcover that's easy to grow in any climate. During the day it's a dense green carpet. As the sun goes down, tiny buds unfurl into snowflake pinwheels. The fragrance is delicious, and it lingers, perfuming the entire garden. Plant it beneath a bedroom window, or in a patio where you sit to stare at the stars.

Another cool plant from South Africa, Night Phlox is perennial in warm zones 9 -10. Elsewhere, it makes plenty of seeds, grows quickly, and makes a fine annual. Happy in sun or shade, it does appreciate even moisture and grows especially well in a container. A single plant with spread to 12" and flower over a long period.

Plants perform best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Sow seeds directly in the garden after danger of frost.

about 25 tiny seeds.
