Phlox subulata 'Running with Scissors'

Creeping Phlox

Large, blunt-tipped blooms of medium violet cover the plants in early spring. The fragrant blooms have darker purple centers. Deep green foliage makes a great groundcover. Plant patent applied for.

Prefers full sun to light shade and moist, well-drained soil, but is very drought tolerant. Light shearing after blooming will encourage some fall rebloom and keep it looking tidy.
