Creeping Phlox
Creeping Phlox (subulata) with needle like leaves

Phlox display two main growth habits, upright and creeping.
The creeping forms can have either broad or needle like leaves
Both types will grow well in a sandy humus rich soil that is not allowed to dry for long periods.
Upright Garden Phlox prefers full sun. The creeping varieties seem to like some shade, the stolonifera has done best for me with morning sun and afternood shade.
