LGS Notes: Creeping phlox is great for rain gardens, borders, and as a replacement for invasive ground covers like English ivy and vinca. Home Fires is a bright pink version of creeping phlox. This plant will do well in shade but be warned that critters like to eat the flowers. Using some Liquid Fence or Deer Off can be very helpful in being able to enjoy the flowers before someone else does!
