Once established, creeping phlox is a drought-tolerant plant that requires supplemental water only during warm, dry weather. A yearly pruning with a weed trimmer or garden clippers keeps phlox looking neat and healthy year after year. Prune after the blooms fade in late spring.
Creeping phlox is a low-growing species which forms a carpet-like mat no taller than 6". This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, on slopes, and in flower borders.
Prefers partial sun, medium watering and blooms in early spring.
