Special Attributes

'White Delight' Creeping Phlox, also known as moss phlox, thrift or mountain phlox, is a delightful low-growing and spreading flowering perennial plant that produces LOADS of wonderfully fragrant, pure white, 5-petaled flowers that literally smother the carpet of evergreen, spruce-like foliage in early to mid spring, depending on your location. We have this one and other creeping Phlox varieties growing on a steep embankment at the front of our property. It's one of those plants that we can't wait to see it start blooming in late winter, heralding the arrival of spring.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 2 to 5 inches tall and 24 inches wide, White Delight Creeping Phlox is ideal for use as a low edger or mass planting in landscape and perennial borders, home foundation plantings, on embankments, slopes or hillsides, or to slightly drape over stone walls. Its small size makes it a perfect fit for smaller garden spaces or as a soil cover in container gardens. A very nice addition to rock gardens. Flowering bulbs will pop right through it in spring and summer!

Spacing:  15-18" for mass plantings;  36" or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

White Delight Creeping Phlox is exceptionally easy to grow in a variety of soils. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil however grows well in sandy or gravely soils and tolerates hot, dry exposures better than most other Phlox species. As with so many other perennial plants, constantly soggy soils can be problematic. The best flowering is in full sun. That said, in the Deep South, plants will appreciate a little dappled shade during the summer. Though not necessary, spent flower stems can be cut back or sheared to form a more dense carpet and possible rebloom.
