How To Care

Plant Red Wings Creeping Phlox in spring and fall for best results. In cooler zones summer is a great time to plant as well. In warmer areas where the ground is able to be dug, winter planting works too. This phlox is recommended for growing zones 3 to 9.

This creeping phlox enjoys full sun and well-drained soil. In subtropical regions, some afternoon shade won’t hurt. Water this plant thoroughly about 2 times per week for the first 3 months while it is establishing. Once established, this red creeping phlox is extremely drought tolerant.

Mulch can be used after planting to help the soil retain moisture longer and keep weeds that compete for moisture and nutrients away. Fertilize your phlox with our balanced Slow-Release Fertilizer when planting and each spring for best results. Deadheading is not necessary, although it can extend bloom time and even increase the number of blooms. These plants are salt, pollution, and rocky, and sandy soil tolerant as well as deer resistant.

Pro Tip: Do not overwater Red Creeping Phlox. Because they are low to the ground, constant moisture so close to the plant can promote disease. Allow the soil to dry before watering.
