If the color pink could be set on fire, you'd get Phlox Red Wings with its deep fuchsia petals and even deeper pink centers. Naturally, she attracts butterflies and hummingbirds with her month-long, colorful display in early spring to early summer.

Her moderate growth rate, makes her ideal for plantings in mass or in a smaller area you wish to blanket quickly. Of course her foliage stands on its own as a mossy textural element in the garden once the blossoms have dissipated. If you want color, this is the variety of Phlox for you!

Gardener Tip
This variety of Phlox is particularly stunning surrounding hydrangea and daisies.

General information about Phlox:
Any gardener who has used Creeping Phlox once will insist on planting again and again. The blanket of delicate, colorful flowers that greet you every spring can only be described as perfectly pretty year after year.

A versatile, easy-to-grow groundcover that forms a dense carpet-like mat no taller than six inches, Phlox proves excellent for erosion control on slopes and in plantings of any size. She cascades like billows of cloth over curbs, drapes down walls, and huddles over hanging baskets. Her flowers blanket slopes all across the south in spring, but her wispy sage evergreen foliage is also an undeniable feature with their tell-tale linear growth.

Though she does prefer full sun for best blooms, she will also do well in partial sun. While she puts up with a variety of soil conditions, ideally she wants well-drained soil and tolerates drought (does not tolerate too much moisture).

Phlox makes a good edging plant for difficult locations including rock gardens. She comes in a variety of colors, so you’re sure to find the perfect shade for your garden.

Gardener Tips
Consider placing multiple plants in one area for quick filling, then in 2-3 growing seasons, you can easily divide this plant in early spring and use her in other areas.

Try planting Phlox with bulbs such as tulips and daffodils for a gorgeous spring display.

Try planting Phlox as a border for herb gardens where she will blanket the earth beneath taller growers such as basil, chives and lavender while not disturbing their productivity.

Phlox arrived quickly, beautifully packed and healthy. I bought a tray of 3 1/2 inch pots, in perfect shape for planting. Plants themselves were a nice size, green and blooming with gorgeous color, and the roots were well developed but not root bound. Everything... Read full review >
