Creeping or moss phlox 'Candy Stripes' is a cultivar with cute pink-white striped flowers. Forms medium-sized, low-growing mats that spread slowly.

The dense, low, evergreen or semi-evergreen mats are completely covered with flowers for about 2 weeks in early to mid spring. An easy-to-grow and adaptable perennial, its only needs are some sunlight and drainage is essential! Deer and rabbit resistant; black walnut, drought, heat, and humidity tolerant.

Favorite plant for xeriscapes, rock gardens, edging, dry slopes, as substitute for the lawn in sunny drier soil, sunny areas of woodland gardens, for native plant gardens or naturalizing. Looks very good with rock. Although this plant is considered "ground covering," it's not competitive enough to be considered a true groundcover - it can compete only in sunny and dry spots (other plants can quite easily self-seed, intermingle or even overpower it).

Blooming Time: 2 weeks in April/May
Size: about 3-4” tall x 24” wide
USDA Zones: 3 to 9
Culture: full sun, half shade, dappled sun; organic, gravelly, rocky, sandy, poor, and shallow soils
Moisture Needs: dry to medium-dry
Origin: the wild form of Phlox subulata is a native wildflower in states from Michigan, Ontario, and New York south to Tennessee and mainly in the Appalachians to North Carolina (See the BONAP distribution map). Often found on dry, rocky or sandy places, open woodland areas, limestone barrens and slopes. 
Deer/Rabbit Resistant: yes / yes
Attracts Butterflies or Pollinators: yes / yes; attracts butterflies, skippers and some native bees.
Attracts Hummingbirds: no
Pot Size: square 3.5" x 4" deep perennial pot
Plant Combinations: best combined with smaller to medium sized perennials – from natives choose Anemone patens, Antennaria, Asclepias tuberosa, Campanula rotundifolia, Coreopsis, Dalea, Gaillardia, Gaura (shorter cultivars), Penstemons, or native grasses like Boutelloa gracilis, Koeleria cristata, and Sporobolus heterolepis. Potential non-native perennial combinations include Lavandula, Nepeta, Origanum, Thymus, Geranium (G. sanquineum, G. endresii, G. renardii) and many others as well as small spring bulbs.
