Red Creeping Phlox Phlox subulata is ideal for rock gardens, topping retaining walls, edging pathways, banks, and slopes - a spectacular evergreen flowering ground cover. Red Creeping Phlox grows vigorously forming dense spreading, spilling mounds covered in reddish-pink blossoms. Masses of tiny red flowers cover the top of this mat forming creeping phlox for a long period.

Red Creeping Phlox creates a carpet of splashed red color for bank plantings or rock gardens. Red Creeping Phlox is a vigorous green and attractive as a flowering ground cover when not in bloom. Red Creeping Phlox is ideal for pots and hanging planters, too. This red creeping phlox will spill over the edges of retaining walls for a graceful effect. Red Creeping Phlox is great to mix with pink and white varieties. Phlox is 4 to 6" high, 12 to 18" wide. Plant phlox in full sun, blooms in Spring.

Our Phlox are shipped in 4 inch containers, ready to plant, and start growing.

Garden Phlox ships SPRING ONLY for optimum planting.

To extend bloom time for your phlox follow this fertilize plan.

Fertilize your phlox the first time in early spring, just after new stem tips show at the soil's surface. Phlox needs a constant supply of nutrients to make strong, steady growth. Sprinkle a 9-12-12 timed-release fertilizer into the soil around the plants and then mulch over the area.

In late spring, after the plants have been in flower for two to three weeks, fertilize again. Pull back the mulch, sprinkle the fertilizer onto the soil around the plants, and replace the mulch. Then water the plants thoroughly. This feeding will provide the plants with ample nutrients to support prolonged flowering.
