Description
Purple Beauty’s gorgeous blooms create a majestic statement in the spring garden, spreading quickly and creating a beautiful carpet of color.

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.
