Quick Overview:

Purple Beauty’ Creeping Phlox is a true gem in the spring garden with gorgeous, bright purple blooms and deep violet center eyes. This 4-6″ tall spreading perennial flowers in the springtime under full sun, but can be planted under trees that leaf out and create shade later in the season. Drought-tolerant and deer-resistant, ‘Purple Beauty’ carries a sweet fragrance.

Description

Superior soil drainage is the key to growing this plant well. Good heat and drought tolerance.  Shear back after flowering to promote denser plants.
