Great Companion Plants for your Creeping Phlox

Considered 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.

Phlox subulata (Creeping or Moss Phlox)

Regarded as one of the most colorful of all ground covers, Phlox subulata is also vigorous, hardy, trouble-free, deer resistant and requires low care. Highly desirable, this little evergreen perennial adds splashes of colors in spring when its masses of bright, fragrant flowers open up for 3-4 weeks in shades of blue-purple, pink, red or white. Irresistible!

Phlox paniculata (Garden Phlox)

With its showy, sweetly fragrant flowers and long blooming season throughout the summer until early fall, Phlox paniculata is a garden classic that is considered by many as the backbone of summer borders. Their full round heads of white, lavender, pink, rose, red and bi-color blossoms sway attractively in the breeze, adding a gentle fragrance that is always welcome.
