(2-6" tall x 12-24" wide) Herald spring with the beauty of our Carefree Creeping Phlox Collection. In early spring, the dense mats of fine-textured bright green foliage burst into glorious bloom, with the foliage barely visible beneath the blanket of star-shaped flowers. Blooming for several weeks each spring, just when we're shaking off our winter coats, Creeping Phlox are carefree, hardy groundcovers that spread without becoming invasive. They're also an important early source of nectar for pollinators. 'Snowflake' has pure white blooms. 'Emerald Blue' has pale blue-violet blooms. 'Candy Stripe' has pink-and-white petals accent the star shape of the flowers. And the flowers of 'Amazing Grace' are white with a delightful magenta eye. Perfect for complementing taller perennials such as Bearded Iris, Siberian Iris, or Garden Phlox, and a lovely pairing with taller spring-blooming bulbs such as Daffodils and Tulips. Deer resistant and drought tolerant once mature. Hardy in zones 2-9.
