Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge'
Large, sky-blue flowers appear between May and June.
Creeping Phlox has unique evergreen ground cover forms a mat of attractive rounded leaves that are only two to three inches high. The flowers rise high above the foliage, but fade gracefully (which means no deadheading). Phlox stolonifera was the first Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year in 1990.
Phlox divaricata and stolonifera are New England natives. We carry only cultivers, which is why they don’t appear on our New England Woodlander list.
