Creeping phlox is a sure sign that spring is underway. These gorgeous ground covers are often seen flowing over the sides of retaining walls and filling the foreground of garden beds. This hybrid pink creeping phlox becomes covered in pink blooms and grows low to the ground even in rocky soils. It has a deep red eye that brings a nice balance to the true pink coloration of the flowers.

Caring for Phlox 'Pink Profusion'
