When spring arrives in a blaze of glory, Creeping Phlox provides the flame.
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.
