Hi Wburt, Welcome!

You can cut back your Creeping Phlox (Phlox subulata) and root the stem cuttings for additional plants. You can also dig up some of the stolons or runners and plant them elsewhere.

Oh yeah....that's a pretty tough plant, despite how fragile it can seem at times. Cutting back won't hurt what is left behind and what is cut away can easily be placed elsewhere to root, as Lin said.
