This has been a very unusual winter for sure, unseasonably mild most everywhere, and now the onset of frost and freeze is threatening many of the plants that have set buds or blooms. While it's a fairly hardy plant (cold hardy to zone 3), I would certainly wait until the threat of freezing temps have ceased before planting creeping phlox. Here is more information on the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/creeping-phlox/creeping-phlox-planting.htm
