North Hills Creeping Phlox

Description
This charming creeping phlox brightens landscapes when it blooms in early to mid spring. Its bright white flowers have cobalt blue eyes—and look impressive planted en masse or with another color of creeping phlox. This perennial ground cover is ideal for planting in rock gardens, along the edges of walkways or along walls. It forms a mat of semi-evergreen foliage that grows 4-6 in. tall. Thrives in poor soils. 2 plants cover 3 sq. ft. Grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-9.

  • CommentsPristine white flowers give a flirty wink with intriguing violet-purple eyes. This stunning ground cover grows just about anywhere with very little effort. Bright, cheery colour appears quickly in late spring amid the needle-like, semi-evergreen leaves to create a lush carpet, even in poor, dry, sandy soil. Looks fabulous in borders and creeping over rock gardens! When contrasting colours are planted together they create a patchwork of glorious hues that flood your landscape for a breath taking effect. Phlox subulata. Masses of star-blooms form the perfect groundcover. More blooms per plant than many other varieties of creeping phlox. Tolerant to adverse growing conditions.
