Creeping phlox

Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge'

Creeping phlox is a spreading, mat-forming phlox which is native to wooded areas and stream banks. Loose clusters of fragrant bluish lavender flowers appear on upright, leafy stems which rise above the foliage mat in spring. The genus name is derived from the Greek word phlox meaning flame in reference to the intense flower colors of some varieties.  This is a great plant to intermix with ferns and other later blooming perennials.
