This Creeping Phlox is a real beauty, with a similar garden performance as the popular ‘Blue Emerald’ but in a darker purple hue. True purple flowers cover the vigorously spreading foliage in late spring. A must-have groundcover for your spring garden.
Creeping Phlox is a low-growing species which forms a carpet-like mat no taller than 6 inches. This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, on slopes, and in flower borders.
Creeping phlox is a versatile, easy to grow groundcover for full sun. Gritty, neutral soils are preferred, and good drainage is essential. It's a good idea to shear this plant back and clean up any dead foliage in early summer, just after it's finished blooming. This will produce denser foliage and will encourage it to rebloom. Divisions can be made every few years in summer.

The plants arrived quickly in excellent condition.
I am very pleased with my plants. They arrived healthy and in good condition. I will be buying from them again.
Despite COVID-19 delaying delivery time, my order of 25 individual creeping phlox plants arrived in good time, and in good shape. Every plant was a healthy green, some with buds just opening, and they were packed extremely well, with newspaper keeping them in place inside the waxed cardboard box. I would definitely purchase garden material from Bloomin Designs again.
