Can creeping phlox be planted in an asparagus bed as groundcover?

In the area I am from, asparagus grows wild on the ditch banks. It has to compete with grass and whatever other weeds but, doesn't seem to have a problem. The phlox may have a hard time competing with the asparagus though. Smiling

I wouldn't do it. You don't want competition for water and nutrients. Use 3" of good mulch to keep weeds away.
