Add a dash of bold magenta red to the edge of a border or along a rock wall with this stunning Creeping Phlox. Plants become a delightful blanket of flowers in the spring, and are tough and durable the rest of the year, given well-drained soil in full sun. Trim back to the low green foliage after flowering to encourage lush new growth.
Phlox is a genus best known for garden perennials, but it includes showy, long-blooming annuals worth growing. Newer varieties produce even more flowers and tolerate summer heat. Provide average, well-drained soil and fertilize regularly.
