Phlox provides the flame when spring arrives in a blaze of glory.
Indeed, Phlox (pronounced "flox") means "flame" or "blaze", and it is appropriate. Hundreds of flowers from red to blue to white carpet the ground in a breathtaking display nearly obscuring the evergreen foliage.
Maintenance is minimal. Creeping Phlox has few pest and disease problems. For a thrilling floral spectacle in spring on a low-maintenance ground cover, I highly recommend Creeping Phlox.
