Additional Information About Pink Creeping Phlox

Phlox Subulata 'Fort Hill' is a moderate growing groundcover plant and perennial plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3A through 8B. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 1 foot to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. The foliage is medium green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases and heat.

Pink Creeping Phlox can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as a groundcover, in landscape beds or islands or in small groupings and also in rock or xeriscape gardens, theme gardens, cottage gardens or perennial gardens.


More About Pink Creeping Phlox...

Phlox subulata 'Pink' is a variety of creeping phlox, also called moss phlox, that boasts clear pink flowers with dark green glossy foliage and a wonderful compact growth habit. Phlox subulata is a vigorous, spreading, mat-forming, sun-loving phlox that is noted for its creeping habit, its needle-like leaves and its profuse carpet of early- to mid-spring flowers with notched flower petals. The stems spread along the ground rooting as they go to form a dense, plush carpet of foliage. 

Especially spectacular draping over a rock wall, Creeping Phlox is also great for use as a colorful groundcover on small to medium size slopes and embankments, as a border along pathways and garden beds, or inbetween the gaps of stepping stones or boulders.

Creeping Phlox is very easy to grow and maintain. It is exceptionally hardy and very drought tolerant when established. It prefers full sun and sandy, rocky, dry to evenly moist soils that do not constantly stay wet or soggy. Plants grow well in sandy or gravely soils and tolerate hot, dry exposures better than most other species of phlox. Though it's not necessary, the flower stems can be trimmed or sheared back after flowering to the low green foliage to encourage lush new growth. Do not prune in fall. Clean-up any winter damage in spring.
