'Purple Beauty' Creeping Phlox creates a mat of bright purple blooms paired with deep violet center eyes and grass-like foliage. This 4-6" tall spreading perennial flowers in the springtime under full sun, but can be planted under trees that leaf out and create shade later in the season. Drought-tolerant and deer-resistant, 'Purple Beauty' carries a sweet fragrance that attracts butterflies. (Phlox subulata)
4-6" tall x 16-24" wide, 'Purple Beauty' presents gorgeous blooms that create a majestic statement in the spring garden, spreading quickly and tolerating a variety of soils. A great addition to rock gardens, slope plantings, and steep banks, this creeping phlox prevents erosion and tolerates dry spells. Simply beautiful when planted en masse.
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.
