Phlox General Information

Phlox stolonifera are an attractive woodland groundcover, alone or in mass. The plants grow out laterally along the ground, flowering in May on short erect stems with light green leaves. Select a location that is not always wet, or does not dry out completely and you will enjoy masses of carefree flowers. Fragrant, best selection for the coldest areas. (zones 3 & 4). Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Phlox Plant Care

Trim back after flowering to the low green foliage for lush new growth. Do not prune in fall, clean-up winter damage in spring.
