Creeping Phlox

Creeping Phlox

A perennial groundcover, Creeping Phlox (Phlox subulata), also known as moss pink or moss phlox, spreads to display a thick blanket of blooms in vibrant shades of pink, lavender, red, white, or bluish-purple every spring. Creeping Phlox is a sturdy, low-maintenance plant that camouflages an unsightly slope or other difficult areas in the landscape as it rambles between rocks or cascades over a wall. It can also be planted along a walkway or bordering a flower bed. Creeping Phlox is best planted in spring, when it is at peak bloom.

Once established, Creeping Phlox is a drought-tolerant plant that requires supplemental water only during warm, dry weather. A yearly pruning with a weed trimmer or garden clippers keeps Creeping Phlox looking neat and healthy year after year. Prune them after the blooms fade in late spring.

Meadows Farms carries a wide variety of Creeping Phlox in the early spring (March-April). Check out a selection of some of the Creeping Phlox we carry.
