Considered as one of the most colorful of all ground covers, Phlox subulata (Creeping Phlox) is a popular evergreen perennial with masses of delicate pink, magenta, purple-blue or white flowers in mid to late spring. They bloom so profusely that they literally blanket the dark green, needle-like foliage.
Fast-growing, Creeping Phlox forms a pretty flower carpet and adds a splash of color for about 3-4 weeks. Perfect for rocky areas, slopes and flower borders, this eastern North America native is also hardy, trouble-free, deer resistant and requires little care.
Easy to grow in full sun (tolerates dappled shade) in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils, Creeping Phlox is a fabulous addition to the garden year-round, especially when it has been maintained by shearing after bloom.
Rather than let this charming beauty bloom lonesomely in a bare patch, give it companion plants and layer your plantings for maximum drama. Creeping Phlox makes perfect partners with other plants and helps create strikingly beautiful combinations in the garden.
