Phlox is a gardener favorite that can easily handle challenging conditions and still look amazing. The Spring Hot Pink Moss Phlox or Phlox subulata blooms in late April. Heart-shaped petals are a bold shade of pink. Needle-like leaves are dark green and fill in the spaces between the blooms. Phlox is a tough, drought-tolerant plant that can handle hot summer temperatures and forgetful gardeners.
Create a border or feature this phlox in a rock garden where the bold flowers will contrast the hardscape. Phlox is a spreader and makes a wonderful groundcover. Let the stems cascade over a stone wall or container edge to add an extra dimension. The sweet nectar attracts pollinators and makes this plant a viable part of the ecosystem. This plant grows as a perennial in zones 3 through 8.
Spring Hot Pink Moss Phlox Care
The Spring Hot Pink Moss Phlox grows well in full sun to partial shade. While this plant likes dampness, it does not like to be soggy, so the soil should be well drained. Phlox prefers neutral to alkaline soil. Feed phlox using a balanced fertilizer in the spring and again in the summer.
Prune phlox after the flowers fade in late spring or early summer. This plant only blooms once per growing season but trimming the plant sets it up for abundant blooms next spring.
Spring Hot Pink Moss Phlox Spacing
Spring Hot Pink Moss Phlox is a mat-forming perennial that grows 4 to 6 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Space plants at least 18 inches apart to create a lovely carpet of flowers.
