Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe' - Creeping Phlox
Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe' There are many selections of creeping Phlox, all of them forming a low mound or cushion of dark green needle-like leaves, smothered by tiny flowers in late spring for a couple weeks. This variety produces a showy display of rose-pink flowers, each petal striped with white. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or near the gravel edges of roads, around trees...anywhere there is full sun and good drainage. Sandy or gravelly soil is o.k. too. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage a dense habit from foliage. Grows from 2-4" high in spreading mounds to 18"-2' Hardy Zones 2-9 Deer resistant.
