Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit, 'Red Wings' Creeping Phlox is an incredibly tough native perennial. Bristly evergreen foliage mounds gently and creeps to provide cover, while deep pink blooms cover the plant in mid to late spring and attract pollinators. Deer resistant 'Red Wings' Creeping Phlox provides an attractive groundcover for fewer weeds, less mowing, and rocky or sloped areas. (Phlox)

(4-6” tall x 12-24” wide) Plant low-growing 'Red Wings' Creeping Phlox to carpet your problem areas and make them come alive with deep pink color in mid to late spring. 'Red Wings' is native and a vigorous bloomer – the plants are completely covered in deep pink stars with red centers in mid to late spring. This makes it an ideal companion for late daffodils and other later-blooming spring bulbs. ‘Red Wings’ Creeping Phlox is also a great option for replacing lawns in difficult-to-mow areas, or front of border ground cover where you can fill in bare earth with thick, textured foliage. Creeping Phlox creates a neat edge if trimmed after blooming. Plant in well-drained, sunny soils with average to low fertility. It is a great choice for sandy or rocky soils and is often  used as a rock garden plant, or as a trailing accent on the top of sunny stone walls.
