    More About White Creeping Phlox...

    Phlox subulata 'White' is a variety of creeping phlox, also called moss phlox, that boasts clear white flowers with dark green glossy foliage and a wonderful compact growth habit. Phlox subulata is a vigorous, spreading, mat-forming, sun-loving phlox that is noted for its creeping habit, its needle-like leaves and its profuse carpet of early- to mid-spring flowers with notched flower petals. The stems spread along the ground rooting as they go to form a dense, plush carpet of foliage. 

    Especially spectacular draping over a rock wall, Creeping Phlox is also great for use as a colorful groundcover on small to medium size slopes and embankments, as a border along pathways and garden beds, or inbetween the gaps of stepping stones or boulders.

    Creeping Phlox is very easy to grow and maintain. It is exceptionally hardy and very drought tolerant when established. It prefers full sun and sandy, rocky, dry to evenly moist soils that do not constantly stay wet or soggy. Plants grow well in sandy or gravely soils and tolerate hot, dry exposures better than most other species of phlox. Though it's not necessary, the flower stems can be trimmed or sheared back after flowering to the low green foliage to encourage lush new growth. Do not prune in fall. Clean-up any winter damage in spring.
