carlet Flame Moss Phlox, also known as Creeping Phlox, is a delightful ground cover plant that produces a stunning display of bright red flowers in early to mid-spring. This low-growing perennial plant is ideal for adding colour and texture to rock gardens, along borders, or in containers. The dense mat of evergreen foliage provides a year-round carpet of green, and when in bloom, the vibrant red flowers attract pollinators such as butterflies and bees. Scarlet Flame Moss Phlox is a hardy plant that is easy to grow and maintain, making it a great addition to any garden or landscape.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Scarlet Flame Moss Phlox prefers consistently moist soil, but not waterlogged. Water deeply once a week, or more frequently in hot, dry weather
  • Maintenance: Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new growth and prevent self-seeding
  • Pruning: In season, pinch back the tips of new growth to encourage branching and denser growth. After blooming, cut back any leggy or overgrown stems to promote a more compact habit. Avoid pruning too late in the season, as this can remove next year's flower buds
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring, before new growth emerges
