Creeping Phlox

Have a retaining rock wall or maybe a large section of planting bed that needs some help? Creeping Phlox might be a worthy candidate. Choosing from a variety of colors, this spring blooming perennial with its needle-like foliage and small starry five-pointed flowers will produce a colorful carpet with long spreading stems that turn woody with age, that can be grown in between pavers, trailing a wall or as ground cover in a planting bed. Cutting back stems after flowering can promote a second flowering. Maxing out to about 4-6” h x 2’ w, when planted in full sun to part sun, this hardy plant will thrive even in a variety of soil conditions as long as the soil is well draining. Watch for mites and other pests and eradicate them as soon as spotted using an insecticidal soap.
