Creeping Phlox is a great natural edging around beds, borders, path edges, between stepping stones and rock garden ledges. It grows about 4 inches tall and has a 12 - 24 inch spread creating a nice ground cover that does not get out of control.
It looks like it would be sharp to the touch like pine needles, but it's actually soft to the touch. The reviews on propagating Creeping Phox are mixed. My personal experience has been to scoop up a section with some roots and just transplant it. I have only purchased three plants and now have them in six areas, so it's worked okay for me. I plan on spreading it around some more.
Today I am Thankful to be able to share one of my latest garden crushes with you.....
