Our Phlox Subulata makes a great ground cover at spring time each year. It blooms rather early and lasts a very long time. Another good thing is that it spreads, but is not invasive. We do have some Candy Stripe, which is a pink and white for underneath the almond tree to match the blossom's color. Further a white variety that is called White Delight and a hot pink that is named Moorheim Beauty. Join me on a Garden Tour.
Phlox Subulata 'Moorheim Beauty'
Pieter did line the deep end of the pond with poles and we let Phlox Subulata grow over it.
Here I have not yet pulled the weeds out... you have to 'hang-over'...
When Spooky walked on his leash, he always pulled me towards those poles where he did his balancing act. Poor little guy died of heart worm disease... Too young at age 4 and a few months.
He asked his Mami to give him more slack...
Here we planted patches of Phlox Subulata up on the hill alongside the creek, in our wood garden.
Home Depot was selling them in gallon pots and when Mom & Dad were visiting one time, we bought several with them.
With some patience it will become a solid carpet of pretty blooms that does attract lots of bees.
Next to a petrified tree trunk... happily basking in the sun light.
This is alongside the driveway where we also grow them between the cross tires.
This is the Phlox Subulata White Delight and no, to the right that is no snake... it's the cord from the camera!
I don't have that many snakes to show; but stay tuned as I did catch one big one on camera...
Not only are they prolific bloomers but they are evergreen too.
Phlox Subulata is a HAPPY plant and very carefree!
