This is a low growing perennial flowering plant. It can mound and it can creep. Even the creeping variety will mound a bit as it creeps. It will cover 12 inch pavers if the space between the pavers allow the Phlox to get deep enough. It can withstand light foot traffic, but is by no means a turf plant.
It is bred for the nursery landscaping business, and will transplant if cuttings are made of older plants in the fall or early spring.
