Creeping Phlox is a favorite for gardeners all across the country – they are ground-covering plants that bloom in a solid carpet in spring. Creeping Phlox also spreads rapidly, covering banks, spaces under tall trees, and other places where you want color. In one color, or as a rainbow, creeping phlox creates one of the most dependably perennial groundcovers you can plant.

Comments about American Meadows Creeping Phlox Emerald Blue:

These are very hardy and easy to grow. They have multiplied quite well in my flower bed. They are also good for drought prone areas. Lasted through 50+ days of 100+ degree heat. Going to buy more!

      Comments about American Meadows Creeping Phlox Emerald Blue:

      After waiting all summer long this particular flower did not take for me at all. They did not bloom at all. They got water every day from my water sprinkler and never dried out. I do not know what went wrong.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
