Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A blaze of fiery red blooms cover dense cushions of narrow green leaves in early summer. These adaptable evergreen phlox are just perfect for smothering weeds, creeping across rockeries, or growing in troughs. Undemanding and tolerant of dry, gritty soils, they are much tougher than their delicate appearance might suggest! Height: 15cm (6"). Supplied in 7cm pots.

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.
Plant creeping phlox into borders, troughs and rockeries in any well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
