Johnny-Jump-Ups, Grape Hyacinths & a TON of Creeping Phlox

The phlox has just started on the sunny side of the rockwall garden. This is just 1/4 of the phlox bordering this area. It goes all the way down for 100 feet. I have this plant in many of the other gardens as well.

As you can see I have a lot of creeping phlox to keep the grass out of. It's a daunting task and I complain about it every year. I worked on it for a few hours Saturday. When it all blooms, it's worth all the work.
It should be a beautiful sight by the weekend.


  1. It looks like magic. What a beautiful sight.

  2. I love the creeping phlox. If only it would bloom longer so we could enjoy it more. How old is your garden?

  3. Your creeping phlox is beautiful! I just love the effect of it covering the ground. You should join us for Bloomin' Tuesday!

  4. Hi Sally,
    Thank you for the nice comment.

    Giddy, That part is 19 years old. All of the phlox came from my original purchase of 4 of those little 1/4 flats.

    Hi Jean,
    Thanks for the kind words.

  5. It's really pretty! I agree, worth it.
    I don't have any as if seems to disappear on me after a few years. I don't think I have your patience to pull weeds out of it.
    Amazing-19 yrs old! I only have a few daffodils that are 21 yrs old as I remember my brother planting them for me when I was expecting Sean.

  6. Like a magic carpet. Just lovely. I'm surprised that it doesn't choke the grass...perhaps you have very determined grass.....lol.

  7. What a lovely view of the rock wall and the river of creeping phlox, Zoey. The blue color works so well!

    I put in a few small plants at the edge of the new front bed - hope it looks good in less than 19 years.

  8. I love your creeping phlox. It has always been one of my favorite things in your garden. In fact, it inspired me to start spreading mine around!
