Raspberry Creeping Phlox

Red Creeping Phlox is ideal for rock gardens, topping retaining walls, lawn edging ideas for pathways, banks, and slopes - a spectacular evergreen flowering ground cover.

This 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.

Creeping Phlox or Phlox subulata creates a carpet of splashed red color for bank plantings or rock gardens.

Garden Phlox is a vigorous green and attractive as a flowering ground cover when not in bloom. 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. Creeping phlox grows 4 to 6" high, 12 to 18" wide. Plant phlox in full sun, blooms in Spring.

Our ground cover perennials Phlox are shipped in 3.5 inch containers, ready to plant, and start growing.

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

Fertilize your red creeping 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 away the spent blooms and then fertilize again lightly. 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.
