Quick Overview:

The fragrant lavender-blue flowers of this Woodland Phlox will last for weeks in spring, dancing above the miniature, light green foliage on 6″ stems. In full bloom, foliage almost disappears under the mass of color due to its dense growth habit. This variety can act as a nice weed-suppressing ground cover in shaded areas. Native to central U.S.

Description

Creeping phlox is a spreading, mat-forming phlox which is native to wooded areas and stream banks in the Appalachian Mountains. Creeping, leafy, vegetative (sterile) stems typically form a foliage mat to 3″ tall and spread indefinitely. Loose clusters (cymes) of fragrant, tubular, lavender flowers (to 3/4″ wide) with five, flat, petal-like, rounded lobes appear on upright, leafy, flowering stems which rise above the foliage mat to 8″ tall in spring.

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.
