Tolerant of hot, dry conditions once established, creeping phlox is widely adaptable. Plants thrive in full sun but tolerate light shade, especially in hot climates. Easy to grow in average to sandy soils, but also tolerant of clay soils as long as they are well-drained. Avoid over-watering plants. Creeping phlox is deer and rabbit resistant. A low-maintenance plant, ‘Amazing Grace’ does not require any special care, though plants can be trimmed back after flowering to encourage a flush of new growth and dense habit
Creeping Phlox is a favorite perennial groundcover in all growing regions. Cold hardy and heat tolerant, it creates a colorful carpet of low-growing, cheerful blooms that appear each spring atop a deep green mat of evergreen foliage. A rapid spreader, Creeping Phlox is masterful at filling spaces in between trees, rolling down gentle slopes or steep banks, and covering areas that are hard to care for with its solid swath of color.
This variety produces a showy display of bright rosy-red flowers and has a medium-fast growth rate. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage a dense habit. Wonderful in the sunny rock garden, for edging, or in mixed containers
