This moderately spreading Creeping Phlox has ½ to ¾ inch, near-white flowers with blush overtones and bright pink eyes covering the foliage well. The healthy-looking foliage spreads evenly and consistently, making this a great choice for a late spring groundcover. This Phlox is similar to ‘North Hills’ in color pattern and garden performance, except in lovely shades of pink.

Creeping phlox is a low-growing species which forms a carpet-like mat no taller than 6 inches. This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, on slopes, and in flower borders.
