Creeping Phlox


A favorite perennial groundcover, Creeping Phlox, is known for its beloved early spring blooms. These beauties produce fragrant blossoms that attract pollinators like hummingbirds and come back yearly.

Crested Iris

Named for the yellow crest tufts in its center, the gorgeous lavender (occasionally some are white) Crested Iris is stunning to behold in bloom, especially in a group. Since they usually bloom at once, it's an eye-catching scene to find numerous plants together in full bloom.
Care for them well, and they will spread happily throughout your landscape as a ground cover -- but be sure only to purchase them from plant sellers and never take them from the wild. They are said to be sparse in most of their usual native zones. Expect first blooms to dazzle around early April.

Oak Leaf Hydrangea

With lovely whitish-green blooms opening during the spring when young, then later changing to dusty pinkish-brown as they mature, Oak Leaf Hydrangeas are primarily known for their leaves shaped like oak tree leaves.

It's recommended that they're planted in afternoon shade in the south, but less so in the north. Keep their soil well-drained and water them according to sun exposure (more water with more sun).

They have beautiful blooms, and their fall foliage color is also stunning.

Image result for violets

Available in several colors, including purple, blue, red, white, yellow, pink, and orange, violets are among some of the earliest blossoms you'll see in the spring. With their pretty heart-shaped leaves, violets can tolerate cold weather well compared to other plants and spread beautifully as ground cover in part shade/part sun.
They are generally considered "low-maintenance" and are perfect for clipping into bouquets as cut flowers or planting in containers. They are always fragrant and sometimes edible, even found sprinkled into a salad or fancy cake recipes.

Image result for bloodroot
Known as a welcome first sign of spring in many woodland areas, Bloodroot is named for the dark reddish-colored fluid that seeps out of its roots and stems. Ants disperse the seeds while bees and flies pollinate their flowers, although they produce no nectar.
Some Native American tribes once used the root medicinally, while others used it as a love charm. Early American settlers used it as a fabric dye.
Don't expect it to last all summer long -- It arrives first thing in the spring, blooms, and then withers down until there is nothing detectable left of it above ground.

Redbud tree

A Redbud tree in full spring bloom is quite a sight to behold. Not only is it covered in tiny, pretty pink blossoms, but it attracts several different types of butterflies and other pollinating insects, as well as the northern bobwhite, chickadee, and other songbirds, to eat the seeds.
George Washington wrote in his diary about the Redbud and transplanted some from the nearby forest into his home garden. These trees grow best in full sun or partial shade with well-drained, moist, rich soil. The Redbud is the state tree of Oklahoma.

Creeping Phlox - TN Nursery

Creeping Phlox

The Creeping Phlox is a low-growing perennial plant with small, vibrant pink flowers that form a dense carpet-like display in spring. It forms a beautiful, lush pink carpet array of blooms and is an excellent spreading groundcover plant that will control weeds and overgrowth near hillsides and banks you can not maintain. Due to its numerous benefits and aesthetic appeal, it is a popular and versatile plant used in landscaping.  The creeping phlox is a solid option for those who want to add gorgeous color to their yard. This plant, also known as the mountain type, moss type, and moss pink, is native to the central and eastern United States, and its beauty makes it a popular option for gardens around the globe. What are the benefits of adding this vibrant plant to your yard or garden? Creeping Phlox Has Brilliant Colors The plant's flowers are stunning, with colors ranging from pale blue, white, and pink to bright violet. Each flower has five hardy petals, but some have six petals. The plants bloom through the spring and summer, providing lasting color for approximately one month. As an evergreen perennial, the plant remains green throughout the year. It can brighten up an otherwise dull, dreary yard in the peak of the cold weather season. Creeping Phlox Is A Filler Plant This plant grows five inches tall and up to 13 inches in diameter. In addition to the expanse of a single plant, the plant proliferates. Many use its beauty as an alternative to grass or a filler in their more extensive gardens. Because of its short height, it does not need to be cut back like grass and other ground cover. Weeds increase and can make your yard look poorly maintained in a matter of weeks. The plant is dense with tightly clustered leaves. When in bloom, the flowers blanket the tops of the plants. Because of its unique traits, the plant prevents or minimizes weed growth. As a result, your gardens can continue to look fabulous without needing to devote hours of your valuable time to pulling weeds regularly. Creeping Phlox Helps With Soil Erosion Prevention Grass generally only thrives on ledges and steep banks, making your grounds look barren and subject to erosion. The creeping phlox, however, thrives in these areas. Its presence can dramatically reduce the damaging effects of erosion while enhancing aesthetics. It is well-suited for providing immediate and long-term benefits to your property.

Add Beautiful Pops of Color With Dwarf Crested Iris This plant is highly regarded for its many colors. The branches are brown and combine with yellowish-green or green leaves and stunning flowers.

The rarer colors are pink and white. Additional colors include a white center and vibrant shades of yellow, orange, purple, and dark blue on its outer petals. Birds Love Dwarf Crested Iris Seeds The seeds produced by the flowers in the spring are under a centimeter in diameter, so they are easily dispersed by birds and the wind. In addition, this is a creeping plant that expands by shooting out long roots underground. While their growth is not usually noticeable only a year after planting them, the plants’ roots expand exponentially. This allows you to enjoy a blanket of them in your yard after several years. This plant is commonly found in the wild in wooded areas. It can also grow in the crags of ledges, on a rocky landscape, or in ravines. This makes it ideal for beautifying a formal garden or a native or xeriscape yard with rock features.
