Phlox subulata 'Drummond's Pink' (3.5-inch pot)
Common Name: Creeping Phlox
This creeping phlox has a richer rose color and larger flowers than 'Emerald Pink'.
Creeping phlox is a low-growing species which forms a carpet-like mat no taller than 6". This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, on slopes, and in flower borders.
Creeping phlox is a versatile, easy to grow groundcover for full sun. Gritty, neutral soils are prefered and good drainage is essential. It's a good idea to shear this plant back and clean up any dead foliage in early summer, just after it's finished blooming. This will produce denser foliage and will encourage it to rebloom. Divisions can be made every few years in summer.
