Product Description

Phlox subulata, the Creeping Phlox - Bare Root Plugs

is a perennial ground cover that has small attractive purple flowers. Thrives best in full sun light. It is a green ground cover, and it can spread and make a vast landscape that everyone will talk about. 



When you are driving along the road in the springtime, and you see beautiful, pastel plants covering vast areas of ground, you may be looking at creeping phlox. This is a spring plant that has small flowers with five points that look like stars. It grows to about two to four inches high with a spread of two feet and is a perennial because it blooms every year. The colors you can choose are pink, white, lavender and a bluish-purple color.


This plant grows well in most soils and partial sun but loves full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Even though it grows easily, for better growth and more abundant flowers, you may want to mix fertilizer to the soil in early springtime.


Some benefits of growing Creeping Phlox plant are:

1. Grows well in most of the United States of America.
2. It is easy to plant and maintain and grows well where other plants may be difficult to develop.
3. It looks stunning in rock gardens, as a ground cover, on a hillside or embankment, as edging in front of a row of flowers or the cracks and crevices in stone walls.
4. It can be divided and planted in other areas and gives you healthier plants if you do this every few years.
5. It attracts butterflies which add more beauty for your enjoyment.
6. Deer are plant-eating, but not these plants!


Finding a plant you love may take some research, but you won’t go wrong if you choose creeping phlox to add beauty to your landscaping!


The Creeping Phlox is shipped bare root.

    Planted in the flower box at our church. They have literally more than doubled in size the first year. Creeping phlox absolutely love the sun. So proud to have them.

    The bare root plants arrived in good shape but at a time when the ground here in RI was still frozen solid. The website says to plant within a few days of arrival but when I tried the ground was just too hard.
