Botanically speaking, creeping phlox plants are herbaceous perennials .
In spring, creeping phlox plants produce small flowers in dense clusters. If massed together as a groundcover, creeping phlox plants make a powerful landscaping statement. The colors available are red, white, blue, pink, rose, lavender, purple or variegated. Creeping phlox plants reach 6" in height and spread out 2'. Some of the needle-like foliage remains green throughout the winter.
Since creeping phlox plants stay short and spread, they are widely used as groundcovers. Although homeowners with flat land can use creeping phlox plants as groundcover to form plant borders along lawns, etc., their dazzling spring flower display is most easily appreciated when they are planted on slopes. In the latter case, the creeping phlox plants not only offer a bit of help in preventing erosion, but also blanket the slope with vibrant color in spring. Creeping phlox plants are also often used in rock gardens.
A plant that attracts butterflies, creeping phlox is a splendid choice for butterfly gardens.
