Groundcovers

These are ground covering plants that readily develop into a mass of stems, leaves, and / or flowers. Groundcovers act like a living mulch and once fully established often help to shade the ground beneath them which helps to reduce weeds. This is also a good way to make a statement in the garden or landscape or use these plants as fillers beneath and around larger growing plants.
 

Deep reddish pink flowers with a dark crimson eye are produced in early spring covering the plant's fine needle-like foliage and making an eye catching display. Red Wings Creeping Phlox make an easy and low maintenance groundcover and the flowers attract butterflies. Use it as spiller over rock walls or as a low accent at the front of the garden and landscape. Deer and drought resistant once well-established. Item# 11813
