Phlox subulata is a variety of creeping phlox, or moss phlox, that boasts flashy pink flowers with dark green glossy foliage and a wonderful compact growth habit. Phlox subulata is a vigorous, spreading, mat-forming, sun-loving phlox that is noted for its creeping habit, its needle-like leaves and its profuse carpet of mid-spring flowers with notched flower petals. Beautiful draping over a rock wall or along garden paths. For a white flowering version see Phlox subulata White.

Creeping phlox is most renowned for its profuse bloom lasting 3-4 weeks in mid to late spring, when it is covered in flowers, creating a vibrant, carpet-like display. Once established, it has good drought tolerance, making it a low-maintenance option for your garden.

Flowering: Spring [September - November]
