DescriptionIt's So Easy to Set the Scene!
Create a picturesque landscape with little, colourful flowers cascading down a dry-stacked stone wall or creeping along a rock garden. The spot in the sun that gets a bit too bright for other plants is just right for carpet phlox. There are so many places for this versatile collection—fill a border, enhance a mixed container planting, or make a sweeping, perennializing ground cover!
A Filler AND a Thriller!
This handy collection keeps otherwise sparse areas lively with low-maintenance, gorgeous greens all year long. Carpet phlox provides even more colour interest come late spring, when the low-growing, needlelike foliage is completely covered in bright blooms.
