Plant Information

Creeping Phlox is a favorite for gardeners all across the country – they are ground-covering plants that bloom in a solid carpet in spring. Creeping Phlox also spreads rapidly, covering banks, spaces under tall trees, and other places where you want color. In one color, or as a rainbow, creeping phlox creates one of the most dependably perennial groundcovers you can plant.

    Comments about American Meadows Creeping Phlox Candy Stripe:

    I purchased these last year & they got settled in over the winter. In May of this year they produced buds & are blooming with sweet "candy stripe" flowers. I just love looking at them. I planted them along the fence which is white & contrasts nicely. Thank you!

        Comments about American Meadows Creeping Phlox Candy Stripe:

        These plants arrived to me nearly dead. I know this site says they arrive dormant but these looked like they were dead. Even after pruning and planting they never grew. This is not my first attempt with these from American Meadows and I am disappointed that my second experience was a repeat of the first. Will not buy again.

              Did not seem to take off growing. Really would love to have it bloom next year.

                  USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                  To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
