creeping phlox

Phlox subulata

Showy spring perennials produce vibrant carpets of bloom in very early spring, right when we’re all starved for some color. Tolerates dry conditions once established. Perfect as an accent in a rock garden. Tumbles nicely over walls.

‘Scarlet Flame’ warms up spring with red, star-shaped flowers over creeping, needlelike, evergreen foliage.

‘Purple Beauty’ makes a luscious carpet of deep purple blooms in early spring.

‘Eye Carumba’ features medium pink flowers with a red eye. The 0.75″ blooms are notably larger than typical Phlox subulata.

‘Crimson Beauty’ sports a sea of rosy-red blooms.

‘Strawberries & Cream’ is a hybrid selected primarily for its color change and long bloom season. Masses of nearly white, with a light violet-pink blush, broad-petaled flowers appear mid-spring and last for weeks. As the flowers mature they become medium to dark pink-violet giving the plant a two-toned look. A slightly larger and more vigorous grower selected from a cross of P. subulata and P. kelseyi.
