Birds & Blooms - - Top 10 -

PHLOX SUBULATA,

ZONES 3 TO 9

Creep­ing phlox is a smaller, low-grow­ing hearty rel­a­tive of the fa­mil­iar fra­grant peren­nial. When the creep­ing va­ri­ety bursts into bloom in March, it forms a cas­cad­ing spread of lit­tle flow­ers, mak­ing it a lovely choice for rock gar­dens, slopes and flower bed bor­ders. Grow it in full sun and trim back af­ter it blooms. Why we love it:

The showy, star-shaped flow­ers at­tract but­ter­flies.
