Keep Weeds At Bay With Creeping Phlox, A Natural And Colorful Solution
While the creeping phlox may seem like just a pretty display with its bold pink and purple blooms, the vibrant flowering plant is also an excellent way to battle weeds.
Ground coverings are a great alternative to the usual weed removal and prevention methods. One of the reasons creeping phlox is a great choice is because of how it grows.
Landscaper Steve Boehme told the Wilmington News Journal that it's a hardy groundcover that essentially "chokes" weeds out, preventing them from popping up in the first place.
It can stretch across the ground and surfaces and climb around walls. Its leaves remain evergreen year-round, and its petals are bold and bright when the flowers bloom.
