Phlox 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox



Stands Up to Heat, Cold, Humidity, and Drought

Floriferous, easy to grow, and so cheerful, Phlox 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox, a native species, sets masses of white blooms broadly striped down the center in lavender pink. The flowers are set just above the needle-like bright green foliage, which is evergreen and very resilient, for a carpet of color. The heaviest bloom is in late spring, but if the plant is sheared back promptly after the flowers pass, they often reappear in autumn.

'Candy Stripe' is a spreading ground cover, perfect for any sunny spot—including difficult slopes, banks, rock gardens, terraced plantings, and other challenging spots. It makes a splendid mass planting, filling in between stones and winding around obstacles, and it also edges paths beautifully.

Deer leave 'Candy Stripe' alone, but hummingbirds and butterflies are frequent visitors. This creeping phlox is resistant to cold, heat, humidity, and even drought, once established. Set its crown at soil level or just above at planting time, and given good drainage, it will take off.
