Start spring off right with creeping phlox. Quickly and easily, the plants spread out and form colorful, weed-excluding carpets that bloom for weeks every spring. Great with spring bulbs. Thrives out in the open or in part-sun flowerbeds, drapes over rocks and rock walls, and never troubled by pests or diseases. Phlox subulata varieties: lavender-hued 'Blue Emerald', purple-eyed white 'North Hills', and bright pink 'Atropurpurea'.
Full or part sun locations. Only 4 to 6 inches high, with a spread of 12-18 inches. Zones 3-9.
