Phlox ‘Home Fires’ brings the delights of creeping phlox to the shade garden with masses of fragrant, bright-pink blooms covering lush, deep-green foliage each spring. Plants spread to form a dense groundcover that doesn’t overpower neighboring plants. Evergreen foliage is rounded and multi-layered. Fragrant flowers attract pollinators. (Phlox stolonifera)

Plant Information

4-6” tall x 18-24” wide. Phlox ‘Home Fires’ is a selection of a native woodland phlox found throughout the eastern United States. Plants provide an important, early-season nectar source for butterflies and hummingbirds. Commonly called creeping or woodland phlox, ‘Home Fires’ thrives in moist, well-drained soils in full to partial shade, though plants are drought tolerant once established. In nature, woodland phlox grows on humus-rich soils. Provide leaf litter and occasional fertilizer to enrich soils. Plants also benefit from good air circulation to limit growth of powdery mildew. Pair with other woodland natives such as bloodroot, trillium, or heuchera. If needed, wait until after flowering in spring to prune plants. Deer and rabbit resistant.

Q & A

Plant With These:

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).
