Phlox-subulata

WGC Phlox subulata Information

Phlox subulata

Moss or Mountain Pink

Planting:

Set out plants 6 to 8 inches apart in full sun, preferably in a rather dry, well-drained soil of low fertility. While tolerant of a wide pH range, P. subulata prefers a neutral or slightly alkaline soil.


Maintenance:

Shear back after flowering – this is essential to prevent the central portion of the clump dying out in a few years and presenting a rather shabby appearance.


Zones:

Zones 3-9
