Spring and fall are ideal times to plant your Dummond's Pink Phlox. In cooler zones summer is a great time to plant as well. Phlox can grow in zones 3 to 9.

Phlox thrive in full sun and prefer moist, well-drained soil. Some subtle afternoon shade may be ideal in hot climates. Water deeply when planting and 2 times per week for the first 3 months while your plant is establishing. Once established, Phlox are drought tolerant. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to prevent weeds and protect your plant's roots in extreme temperatures. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring for best results. Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and extend bloom time. Phlox are deer resistant and salt, pollution, and erosion tolerant. Creeping Phlox tolerant sandy and rocky sites.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, air circulation, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Phlox don't tend to have a lot of issues with pests of disease, but because they grow at ground level there are a couple things to watch out for. Mites can be treated naturally with neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. To determine if mites are an issue look for the foliage to be dull and webbing to appear. Phlox can, on occasion, encounter fungal issues especially when moisture is high and air circulation is low. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire plant must be coated in order for this method to be effective. Water at the base of this plant to avoid fungal disease on the leaves. For severe fungal infections treat with a fungicide.

Pink Drummond's Creeping Phlox are lovely groundcovers. These plants have a low, spreading habit that becomes mat-like over time. Plant in mixed beds, rock, woodland, and cottage gardens, containers, low walls, and next to walkways. This phlox cascades like a waterfall over edges and down slopes if you like or trim them for a tight, clean edging. Plant in mass for a bold pop of color and a unique grass substitute.

DRUMMOND'S PINK CREEPING PHLOX

Purchased 4 for the 2017 planting season. All performed well over the summer. 1 plant did not survive the winter. The remaining 3 have come back with beautiful flowers and a nice spread. Would buy again.

Beautiful plant and great packaging

I have not planted these yet, as there is still snow in my garden. The plants have been spending their days on my deck, adjusting to high altitude. The look great! I look forward to seeing them in my garden.

So far so good...

Only reason I only gave it a 3 is because I haven't had it in the ground long enough to spread or bloom. So far; it's just an evergreen sprig pile around the tree I planted for my late wife, but got it hoping it would cover the whole base of the tree eventually. Still hoping it will, and it's still alive two weeks later; will update after it has some time to take root...
