Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
Apple Blossom’s light, star-shaped blooms create an elegant groundover in the spring garden. They prefer as much sun as possible and are deer resistant.

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 Apple Blossom:

        Disappointed in this plant. I followed the planting instructions, and planted the day after I received it. Within a few days it has turned brown and shriveled up.
