Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe' (=Moss Phlox USDA Zone: 2-9) is a popular garden cultivar of phlox. There are many selections of Moss Phlox, all of them forming a low mound or cushion of dark green needle-like leaves, smothered by tiny flowers in late spring. This variety produces a showy display of rose-pink flowers, each petal striped with white. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage a dense habit. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or in mixed containers. Clumps may be ripped apart and divided in early Autumn, after 3 to 4 years. Requires good drainage. Drought tolerant, once established.
