A fine alternative to Vinca and other over-used groundcovers, this native American creeping phlox (Moss Phlox) offers a swathe of late-spring blooms plus year-round color. Find a place for it in sun-soaked gardens and patio planters this season for years of carefree beauty.

Lavender-blue blooms, tiny but borne by the hundred, top this low-growing perennial. Cut the plants back after the flowers pass and the foliage will grow in more thickly than ever before, creating a mat that tolerates light foot traffic, drought, heat, and other environmental challenges.

Deer avoid this evergreen plant, but pollinators adore it, particularly butterflies and even hummingbirds! Give it plenty of water and good fertile soil the first season to get it established, then turn it loose. Great for shoring up loose soil on banks and slopes, too! Zones 2 to 9.
