Description / 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox

'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox is a beacon of color and ease for any gardener. This floriferous and effortless-to-grow plant is a native species renowned for its lavish display of white blooms, each marked with a distinct lavender-pink stripe down the center. Set against a backdrop of needle-like bright green foliage, which remains evergreen throughout the year, 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox creates a stunning carpet of color that is both cheerful and resilient. The most abundant flowering period is in late spring, transforming any garden space into a vibrant spectacle. However, with timely shearing after the initial bloom, you are rewarded with a second flush of flowers in the autumn, doubling the joy this plant brings into your garden.

As a spreading ground cover, 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox is an ideal candidate for brightening sunny spots, even in challenging areas like slopes, banks, rock gardens, and terraced plantings. Its ability to fill in gaps between stones and meander around obstacles offers a splendid mass planting option, while also serving beautifully as a path edger.

The resilience of 'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox extends beyond its visual appeal. It is a hardy plant that is resistant to deer, yet it acts as a magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies, adding life and motion to your garden. This creeping phlox variety stands up well to a range of conditions, including cold, heat, humidity, and drought once established. For best results, plant it with its crown at soil level or just above, ensuring good drainage, and watch as it thrives, spreading beauty and color.

'Candy Stripe' Creeping Phlox, also known as Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe', is not just another garden plant; it is a statement of beauty, resilience, and environmental harmony. By choosing 'Candy Stripe' for your garden, you're not only creating a visually stunning landscape but also supporting a vibrant ecosystem.

If you are looking for a flowering ground cover or a pollinator-attracting, sweetly fragrant flower for your cottage garden, take a look at phlox. With the variety of plant forms, blooms styles, and flower colors, phlox will add beauty to your garden space.
