Creeping Phlox or Moss Phlox (Phlox subulata) is a low-growing, ground cover perennial that thrives in full sun.
It is easy to grow, deer-resistant, drought-tolerant and creates a carpet of color at the front of garden beds in the spring. What’s not to love?
Once it gets going, Moss Phlox will cover the area with pretty white, blue or pink flowers in the spring, and looks beautiful with daffodils or tulips growing through it.
