Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge'

Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge'

Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge'     Native     Z 4 - 8     shade - part shade

[Blue Ridge creeping phlox ]
Evergreen foliage stays close to the ground forming a two inch tall mat of deep green as stems ramble and crisscross each other. When in bloom plant height is about eight inches. Blue Ridge has flowers of good size, in very nice numbers, and of a deep blue with lavender cast in early spring.
 

Transplant: Mine is surrounding a June hosta and grows at the foot of an oak leaf hydrangea. Great with almost any yellow foliage, or with larger perennials having white blooms such as Trillium grandiflorum to quietly set each other off in color and form.
 

From 5 pint containers.

Dicentra cucullaria

Dicentra cucullaria     Native     Z 3 - 7     shade

[Dutchman's breeches]  Ferny foliage and size much resembling squirrel corn at eight inches or so, often with a bluish cast to the leaves.  Blooms are white and shaped like pantaloons hanging on an arched stem.

Transplant:  Do plant shallowly, no deeper than just below the soil surface with lots of leaf mold or complst.  No more than just below the soil surface.  I like to place mine on good soil and simply push down gently with my thumb, then cover.  This native is early deciduous.  These small Dicentras are best grown in drifts between other plants such as Primula vulgaris and veris, and hellebores, our native Jack-in-the-Pulpit and Trilliums of choice.

From 1 quart containers.

Athyrium filix-femina 'Lady in Red'

Athyrium filix-femina 'Lady in Red'     Native     Z 4 - 8     shade

['Lady in Red' Lady Fern]  Two to three feet of tough as nails beauty.  Lacy and delicate in appearance with red stems showing up well in afternoon light.  This native lady fern continually sends up new fronds, so it is possible to keep the fern looking fresh as spring all summer.

Transplant:  Best performance is in bright shade and can tolerate sun if kept moist.  In the wild this species is found in moist, rich soil with a mulch of decaying leaves.  My favorite companions are the new cultivars or species of heuchera.

Phlox stolonifera 'Bruce's White'

Phlox stolonifera 'Bruce's White'     New     Native     Z 4 - 8

[Bruce's White Creeping Woodland Phlox] I finally obtained sufficient quantities for both my garden and yours. Great little spreading evergreen ground-cover that is impervious to insects and disease, withstands drought well once established. An abundance of soft-white blooms on eight inch fuzzy stems waving in the winds of spring.

 
Transplant: White provides a background or holds its own, depending upon how you want to use the plants. I enjoy mine providing background for those darkest of color hellebore blooms. Transplants several of Bruce's White with chocolate-blooming Trillium vaseyi featured above the white and green.

Phlox stolonifera 'Home Fires'

Phlox stolonifera 'Home Fires'     Native     Z 4 - 8     part shade

[Home Fires Creeping Woodland Phlox] Foliage with round to oblong leaves on trailing stems which root as they travel forming open ground-covers that hug the forest floor. Blooms will be well above the foliage at about 10 inches and in a pink bright enough to stop traffic. Some light fragrance.
 

Transplant: Open shade is best for both foliage and bloom production. Good garden soil helps, but they will perform on less. Keep mulch on the light side so the stems can come back up through it. Very tolerant of drought once fully established. I use mine as background for larger plants such as small rhodies, hellebores, spring bulbs.

Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple'

Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple'     Native     Z 4 - 8     part shade

[Sherwood Purple Creeping Woodland Phlox] This selection of the creeping phlox cultivars is the most assertive, quickly forming a good-sized ground-cover of ground-hugging foliage. Blooms are a clear purple, in abundance about 8 inches above the leaves.

 
Transplant: After planting the main root system, spread the runners and place a bit of soil
over the leaf joints, then place a small stone over the area. The nodes will root and quickly form mats of foliage. Companions of Trillium grandiflorum and/or Trillium luteum would be close to perfect.
