Product Description

Quite possibly one of the most colourful of the creeping phloxes, this dainty, evergreen perennial is a versatile solution for a colourful spring garden, perfect for planting in drifts for a carpet of colour through April and into May or dotted around to fill gaps and keep weeds at bay.

With an abundance of 5-petalled star-like flowers along with distinctive needle-like leaves, each plant will spread to 60cm (2ft) across and is the perfect choice for rock gardens and for edging paths and borders. Also known as creeping moss phlox, you can grow it in mixed borders in full sun as well as in all manner of containers - it really is a plant for every occasion.

As well as making an invaluable groundcover plant and weed suppressant, hardy carpet phlox is a low or no maintenance hardy plant needing very little in the way of aftercare, making it the perfect plant for those new to gardening or with no time for faddy garden divas.

This collection is made up of 4 different varieties:

  • 'Candy Stripe' - Pink with white stripes.
  • 'Emerald Cushion Blue' - Pale lavender blue.
  • 'McDaniels Cushion' - Bright pink.
  • 'White Delight' - Pure white.

The plants were all? in good condition. I ordered 12 and there was only 7 in the box. I have a feeling that this has happened with an order from this company.
Product:
The plants look ok. However only 7 of them were in the box and not the 12 I ordered. I have a feeling that this has happened before with this company.

Top-notch customer service: the original order arrived minus three (of twelve) plants. I contacted GB to explain and a replacement order was sent out immediately. Very impressive! The plugs themselves are, as is usually the case with this company, in good condition and very reasonably priced, so no complaints from me ...
Product:
Good quality plants in great nick.
