is a flowering herbal plant that is native to woodlands in the range of the Appalachian mountains. From the southern Appalachians, all the way north to Quebec, Canada, this creeping perennial can cover large areas in pink, purple, or white flowers and two different types of stems and leaves. The stems which are flowering are separate from the creeping stems. Leaves on both types of stems are oval-shaped, but those on creeping stems are larger and broader than the leaves that grow on flowering stems. While the leaves are smaller, flowering stems are taller as they tend to grow towards the sky. While creeping stems grow sideways and can tangle together to make a thick, solid mass of Creeping Phlox. The leaves tend to be arranged in clusters and unevenly spaced with gaps from less than an inch to several inches in between each cluster. To successfully plant Creeping Phlox, planting in the spring or fall during mild temperatures is the best course of action. Each plant should be spaced twelve to eighteen inches apart as needed for complete garden coverage and to eliminate any undesirable "bald" spots. Once it securely established in the garden, Creeping Phlox only needs watering during warm, dry weather.
