Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple' is a cultivar of creeping phlox, a low-growing perennial groundcover that produces excellent bright purple flowers in the mid- to late Spring. Growing less than 12" tall, 'Sherwood Purple' is a great bed flower with tubular, star-shaped, fragrant blooms above a sea of compact, bright green rounded foliage that retains its color year round.

Attractive to a number of pollinators including native bees and butterflies, and performing best in full to part-shade, Phlox stolonifera 'Sherwood Purple' is the perfect plant to line beds or underplant larger shrubs in shaded pollinators gardens or to naturalize in woodland settings. With its slow spreading nature, this Maryland native requires only an average amount of moisture, grows well in sandy, slightly acidic soils, and is tolerant of deer and rabbit browsing, making it a very versatile groundcover selection.
