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.
