Phlox stolonifera 'Bruce's White' produces loose clusters of fragrant white blooms with yellow centers from spring to early summer on 8"-12" stems. A woodland perennial, it forms creeping mats of medium green foliage that will weave nicely through ferns, Tiarella and other spring bloomers. Phlox 'Bruce's White' was discovered in a natural stand of the wild species.
Phlox stolonifera is native to the eastern United States from Maine to Ohio and south along the Appalachians to Alabama and Georgia. It naturally occurs in deciduous woodlands, along stream banks and on shaded rocky slopes, mostly in the mountains.
Also known as Creeping Woodland Phlox, Phlox stolonifera 'Bruce's White' prefers partial shade to full shade and moderately moist, humus-rich soil. Cut back hard after blooming to refresh foliage and prevent powdery mildew issues.
