Introduce a burst of vibrant color to your garden with Phlox subulata 'Scarlet Flame', a striking variety of creeping phlox known for its brilliant scarlet flowers and lush, mat-forming foliage. This perennial ground cover is a favorite among gardeners for its ability to spread quickly and provide a thick carpet of color in the spring.

The 'Scarlet Flame' dazzles with its dense clusters of deep red flowers, which create a dramatic visual impact when they bloom profusely in early to mid-spring. These vivid blossoms not only add a rich depth of color but also attract pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds, adding life and activity to the garden.

Ideal for rock gardens, borders, and slopes, Phlox subulata 'Scarlet Flame' thrives in well-drained soil and full sun, where it can best showcase its vibrant blooms and semi-evergreen foliage. Its ability to spread over rocks and spill down walls makes it an excellent choice for erosion control and for adding texture and color to challenging areas of the landscape.

Low maintenance and drought-tolerant once established, 'Scarlet Flame' requires minimal care, making it a fantastic selection for busy gardeners and those new to gardening alike. Its resistance to deer and other pests ensures that its colorful display remains pristine throughout the season.

With Phlox subulata 'Scarlet Flame', you can transform any space into a stunning display of fiery red, enhancing the beauty of your garden with a reliable, eye-catching ground cover that will return year after year.

If a punch of vibrant scarlet red color is what you are seeking, search no more. Scarlet Flame will not only paint your garden in vibrant, inviting hues, she'll also call butterflies and hummingbirds to come to the party.

Scarlet Flame's creeping habit makes it perfect for plantings over walls and in cracks. In addition to being tolerant of clay or sand in its soil, this Phlox variety thrives in polluted and windy conditions making her a wonderful option for urban gardeners.

General information about Phlox:
Any gardener who has used Creeping Phlox once will insist on planting again and again. The blanket of delicate, colorful flowers that greet you every spring can only be described as perfectly pretty year after year.

A versatile, easy-to-grow groundcover that forms a dense carpet-like mat no taller than six inches, Phlox proves excellent for erosion control on slopes and in plantings of any size. She cascades like billows of cloth over curbs, drapes down walls, and huddles over hanging baskets. Her flowers blanket slopes all across the south in spring, but her wispy sage evergreen foliage is also an undeniable feature with their tell-tale linear growth.

Though she does prefer full sun for best blooms, she will also do well in partial sun. While she puts up with a variety of soil conditions, ideally she wants well-drained soil and tolerates drought (does not tolerate too much moisture).

Phlox makes a good edging plant for difficult locations including rock gardens. She comes in a variety of colors, so you’re sure to find the perfect shade for your garden.

Gardener Tips
Consider placing multiple plants in one area for quick filling, then in 2-3 growing seasons, you can easily divide this plant in early spring and use her in other areas.

Try planting Phlox with bulbs such as tulips and daffodils for a gorgeous spring display.

Try planting Phlox as a border for herb gardens where she will blanket the earth beneath taller growers such as basil, chives and lavender while not disturbing their productivity.
