Creeping Phlox - Phlox Subulata

Creeping phlox is a popular and versatile plant used in landscaping due to its numerous benefits and aesthetic appeal. Native to North America, this low-growing, evergreen perennial offers various advantages, making it an excellent choice for enhancing outdoor spaces.

This plant ships bare-root and dormant (no leaves or foliage) It will not green out until next spring.

One of the primary benefits of it in landscaping is its ability to form a dense and colorful ground cover.

Creeping Phlox has a carpet-like growth habit, which creates visually striking display when planted en masse or along slopes, rock gardens, and borders.

Once established, it is drought-tolerant and relatively pest and disease-resistant, reducing the need for constant care and interventions.

Due to its ability to spread and fill in bare spots also acts as a natural weed suppressor, crowding out unwanted vegetation and minimizing the need for manual weeding. This can be particularly advantageous in large landscapes where controlling weed growth can be challenging.

Furthermore, the dense foliage provides excellent ground cover, helping to prevent soil erosion on slopes and hillsides. Its root system helps stabilize the soil and reduce runoff, making it an environmentally friendly choice for erosion control.

In addition to its practical benefits, the fragrant blooms of it attract pollinators such as butterflies and bees, contributing to the overall biodiversity of the landscape. Encouraging pollinators is crucial for maintaining a healthy ecosystem and supporting other nearby plant species.

Another advantage of using it in landscaping is its versatility in various design schemes. It can serve as a cascading border plant, a colorful rock garden accent, or a delightful addition to flowerbeds and pathways.

In conclusion, it is a valuable and versatile plant in landscaping. Its ability to form a dense ground cover, require minimal maintenance, act as a weed suppressor, prevent soil erosion, and attract pollinators make it an attractive choice for enhancing outdoor spaces.

A+ customer service

I recently had a shortage in my order and the items were sent quickly. These are all dormant plants, so I can't really speak to how they will grow next year, but they seemed to be in good condition and am hopeful for beautiful spring flowers. Very responsive customer service! Thank you Tennessee nursery
