1 Gallon Pot. Native. Phlox stolonifera, commonly called creeping phlox, is a spreading, mat-forming phlox which is native to wooded areas and stream banks in the Appalachian Mountains. Creeping, leafy, vegetative (sterile) stems typically form a foliage mat to 3″ tall and spread indefinitely. Loose clusters (cymes) of fragrant, tubular, lavender flowers (to 3/4″ wide) with five, flat, petal-like, rounded lobes appear on upright, leafy, flowering stems which rise above the foliage mat to 8″ tall in spring. Oblong to oval green leaves (to 3″ long) on the sterile stems, with smaller flowering stem leaves (to 3/4″ long).
