Eye Candy Moss Phlox Care
Eye Candy Moss Phlox is hardy in zones three through eight. This phlox grows quickly and easily in almost any sun exposure. It can be used in well moistened soil, dry soil, or even within a rock garden as it’s flexible with soil preference. This phlox should be supplementally watered if a long, dry period is observed during flowering to maintain bloom vitality.
This perennial phlox can be cut to half the size after blooming. This would be beneficial to encourage reblooming, and dense evergreen foliage.
