Need a bold shot of color to herald spring's arrival? Creeping Phlox are an invaluable addition to any rock garden, foundation, or as an edger or groundcover. Delightful glowing flowers of pink with white bands blanket the evergreen needle-like foliage. This vibrant beauty is a beautiful complement any open sun-filled spot. Phlox Candy Stripe will cascade beautifully over a rock wall or down a slope. Blooming in mid-spring, it combines well near tulips and daffodils.
Phlox subulata are low-growing, showy plants suitable for cascading over walls or down a slope. Spreads rapidly to cover any open sunny spot. In rich soil, as much as 2' across, completely covered with flowers in mid-spring. Prefers sandy soil.
No special care needed. Can be trimmed back after flowering to the low green foliage if lush new growth is needed. No need to prune in fall, clean-up winter damage in spring.
