Creeping Pink Phlox

Creeping Pink Phlox

This was a 4″ pot many years ago, that has moved down the hillside. The area is not irrigated, so the plant goes dormant by summer, to re-emerge every spring with these beautiful pink flowers.

Deer and rabbits have not eliminated it, even though the plant does not have the usual rodent deterrents of strong scent or fuzzy leaves.

One winter, I tried to transplant some shovels-full of this groundcover, but they never ‘took’. Perhaps it was a drier spring that year, I cannot remember.

I got a new camera yesterday, and took a few photos as a test. Wow, I did not realize what a difference it would make. Watch out!
