Sherwood Purple Creeping Phlox is a native spreading perennial that forms a mat of oval dark green foliage.  Leafy upright flowering stems host loose clusters of vibrant highly fragrant purple flowers with rounded lobes bloom from late spring into summer.  Best flowering in full sun and rich, consistently moist, well-drained soils.
