Phlox stolonifera will grow best in organic, medium moisture, slightly alkaline, well-drained soil in full sun. Good soil drainage is mostimportant. Maximum flowering is achieved in full sun, but in southern zone summer's heat, plants welcome dappled afternoon sun.
This popular little perennial is best utilized in rocky areas, woodland gardens, slopes, native plant gardens, naturalized areas, and in flower borders. Excellent as a border plant, edging, ground cover, mass plantings, salt tolerant and easy to grow.
