Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Delicate in appearance, but tough in character, these spreading perennials will carpet your garden in rich colour and keep weeds at bay. This variety is evergreen, with a height of no more than 15-25cm. Each plant can spread up to 45cm across and will form spreading mats of mid-green leaves which, from April to June, are smothered with flowers. This hardy rockery plant has many uses - underplant trees, shrubs and tall perennials, soften path edging or cover awkward slopes and banks. If you're tired of your lawn, why not replace it with a sea of seasonal colour that bridges the colour gap between winter and summer bedding.

Your collection will include Phlox 'Candy Stripes', 'Pharaoh Red Eye', 'Red Admiral', 'Drumonds Pink' and 'Emerald Cushion Blue'.

Plant creeping phlox into borders, troughs and rockeries in any well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
Once established, Phlox subulata requires little attention, and only occasional watering will be necessary during particularly dry periods. Deadheading faded flowers will encourage more blooms to be produced over a longer period. In summer, after flowering, stems can be cut back by a third to promote a flush of fresh foliage to be produced. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.
