Atropurpurea Creeping Phlox

Colorful Ground Cover

Bright red flowers make a big impact when they bloom in early to mid spring.

It forms a mat of semi-evergreen foliage that grows 4-6 in. tall. Thrives in poor soils. 2 plants cover 3 sq. ft. Grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-9.
