Quick Overview:

Excellent, shade tolerant Phlox that spreads rapidly by stolons, forming dense mats of delicate foliage that are 6″ tall. Tiny flowers cover the plant in dense clusters in spring. Phlox stolonifera thrives in woodland conditions, with partial shade and moist soil that is rich in organic matter. It makes a beautiful flowering ground cover.

Description

Creeping Phlox is as it sounds, a ground-covering evergreen native with paddle-shaped leaves that form 1-2 inch mats in moist, acid soils. The flower spikes shoot up above these mats on thin 8-inch stems for a wonderful effect. Best grown in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Good shade tolerance. Prefers acidic, rich, organic soils with continuous, even moisture. Self-seeds in optimum growing conditions. Spreads by stolons to form large colonies in the wild as both the common and species names suggest.
