Product Overview

Low growing, 4-6 in. tall, spreading perennial with unique, pink and white-striped flowers, which appear in profusion in late spring, completely engulfing the foliage with their color. Butterflies are attracted to the blooms. Forms a very dense mat of evergreen foliage, which can be used to control soil erosion on slopes. Plant in most, well drained soils in full sun. Shear plants back after flowers fade. Use as a border or groundcover (plant 12 in. apart) in poor, dry soil where other plants fail to thrive.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does the phlox need special care

I would like to cover a large area but don`t have the time to care for it often.
Asked by: spider
Thank you for your inquiry. The Candy Stripes Phlox does not need any special care. It can be cut back to the low foliage after blooming, if desired, to promote additional lush growth. No trimming required in fall; winter damage, if any, can be cut in early spring.
