Candy Stripe Creeping Phlox

Candy Stripe Creeping Phlox

Colorful Pinwheels Twice a Year!

Ready to grow in a snap, eager to bloom, and tolerant of imperfect garden conditions, this Creeping Phlox is the ideal flowering groundcover for any sunny spot. The lavender-striped white looms arise very heavily in spring, and may even repeat in fall!

Candy Stripe is a perennial you can trust to your most challenging garden spots, such as steep banks, rockeries, terraced gardens, and more. Use it in mass to cover a large space, or dot it in between perennials, bulbs, and shrubs in the border for fresh, bright early-season color. To encourage rebloom, just shear the plant back after the first flowers begin to pass.

Candy Stripe reaches 4 to 6 inches high but can spread up to 18 inches in the garden, filling in within just a season or two. A great companion to spring-blooming bulbs, it is also lovely in containers, and its autumn rebloom really perks up the late-season garden.

Hummingbirds and butterflies love these blooms, and nibbling animals tend to avoid the plant. Candy Stripe is prepared to withstand heat, humidity, drought and cold, becoming ery tough and adaptable once esablished in your landscape. You will love what it does for the garden! Zones 2-9.
