'Purple Beauty' Creeping Phlox is a top choice for an easy-to-grow, ground covering addition to a rock garden, perennial border, bulb garden, or slope. Covered with lovely lavender-purple flowers for 4-6 weeks in the mid-spring garden, this butterfly favorite is also deer resistant and salt tolerant. Growing to just 4-6 inches tall and spreading in a dense moss-like mat to 12-18 inches wide, this native groundcover is an easy way to add spring color and evergreen foliage to the garden. Not fussy, it requires average soil with good drainage in a sunny spot, and once established it’s a water-thrifty perennial that will naturalize and spread, filling in bare spots. Easy care, just shear it back once the flowers have bloomed to promote new foliage and increase next year’s blossoms. The needle-like greenery makes a mounding mat that is both cold hardy and heat tolerant. Suitable for zones 3-9. (4-6" tall x 12-24" wide).
