Description

Nice to meet you! I am a Fort Hill Moss Phlox, best known for my cute, rosy pink star shaped flowers and my needle-like emerald foliage that retains its color all year round. My bright pink blooming ground cover does an excellent job of spreading across empty areas of the garden, resembling the dense coverage of moss. I have a few special requests to make sure I am happy and healthy - I like my soil to be very well drained, I prefer alkaline soils, and you'll want to keep an eye on me to make sure I am not wandering into different parts of your garden (I like to spread out and explore - but regular pruning will keep me in check!) My perfect home has some sun for me to bask in throughout the day, and since I am so tolerant of pollution, I love to be planted in the city!

Highlights

  • Abundant blooms: The Fort Hill Creeping Phlox is known for its profuse and showy blooms, which cover the low-growing, spreading foliage in a blanket of colour.
  • Drought-tolerant: This variety of phlox is highly tolerant of dry conditions, making it a great choice for areas with limited rainfall or for gardeners who want a low-maintenance plant.
  • Versatile: The low, spreading habit of the Fort Hill Creeping Phlox makes it a great choice for a variety of garden applications, including as a groundcover or as a border plant. It also looks great cascading over walls or spilling out of containers.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water the Fort Hill Creeping Phlox deeply once a week during the growing season. Make sure to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged leaves to encourage new growth.
  • Pruning: Prune the plant after flowering to promote new growth. Cut back the stems to just above the foliage.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a slow-release fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears.
