2-4" tall x 12-18" wide. ‘Snowflake’ Creeping Phlox is an improved selection of the native wildflower providing an early-season nectar source for butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. Often called moss phlox for its dense habit, creeping phlox is soft to the touch, but a tough grower. Drought tolerant once established, ‘Snowflake’ is disease resistant and low maintenance. An ideal groundcover that performs in the off season, with fine-textured, evergreen foliage that keeps beds looking fresh all year. Excellent for edging beds or planting on banks for erosion control. Plants perform well beneath walnut trees. Creeping phlox is also used as a component of green roofs. Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils and tolerant of clay. Avoid over-watering. Plants tolerate light shade, but bloom best in full sun.
Creeping Phlox is a favorite perennial groundcover in all growing regions. Cold hardy and heat tolerant, it creates a colorful carpet of low-growing, cheerful blooms that appear each spring atop a deep green mat of evergreen foliage. A rapid spreader, Creeping Phlox is masterful at filling spaces in between trees, rolling down gentle slopes or steep banks, and covering areas that are hard to care for with its solid swath of color. Very dependable and tolerant of many soil types. Deer resistant.
