Designing with Phlox

Phlox is such a gorgeous perennial that can be used in a variety of different ways! They make great perennials in groupings and for borders where flowers are welcomed in any color scheme.

There are two types of phlox that you can design with:

Creeping phlox- this easy to grow, deer resistant phlox works well as a ground cover because of its low mounding and spreading qualities! Works well in both areas of your garden that you want to keep low maintenance as well as the showy beds and borders. Let creeping phlox cascade over rocks, low walls or the edge of raised beds!

Tall Garden Phlox- ideal for the back of a border, where it will add a layer of eye-catching color behind other mounding perennials like Daylillies or Black Eyed Susan and Cone flowers like in the picture below!
