Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple'
Strong grower. Dusty purple flowers appear between April and May.
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.
