This pink creeping phlox will spill over the edges of retaining walls for a graceful effect. Great to mix with white and red varieties. Phlox grows 4 to 6" high, 12 to 18" wide. Plant phlox in full sun, blooms in Spring.

For your phlox follow this fertilize plan.
Fertilize 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 flowered, clip the spent blooms and then lightly 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 any further flowering. Prune spent blooms off plants to prevent them from burning the foliage.
