Mixed Creeping Phlox

Description
Needle-like, semi-evergreen leaves quickly form a dense, mossy ground cover that's smothered with blossoms in early to mid spring. Grows only 2-6" tall with a neat creeping habit. Best in full sun to partial shade. Let the plants wind their way through a rock garden; form a low-growing border, bank or bed; or add a dash of color around a lamppost or mailbox. Thrives anywhere, even in poor, dry, sandy soil where other ground covers fail. Space 12-18" apart. Zones 3-9.
