It has been just a little over one year since I got my order and planted everything. Let me tell you -- my front yard is the talk of the neighborhood. No lie. People stop and ask me what this carpet of flowers is ALL THE TIME! And my neighbor came over this morning to tell me a couple of adorable old ladies stopped and crossed the street to come over and admire the flowers. I personally want to lay down and make snow angels in the candy stripe batch -- this group is especially plush, poofy, and beautiful. Seems to be more full than the snowflake and the pink variety. So with that said, I will be ordering more candy stripe right away to finish off the other half of my front yard. :) Very pleased!
04/14/2016 Update Got the shipment in a week ago. I had planned around forecasted weather for my zone, and unfortunately, the weather changed a little we ended up with a few nights in the high 20's and low 30's. To be safe I held off on planting. The phlox stayed packaged up on my enclosed (not heated) porch until the cold snap was over.

I opened the box on Sunday morning (I got the shipment on Thursday) and the plants not only looked super healthy, they also were still really moist from the fantastic packaging (damp newspaper wrapping, genius). It is now Wednesday and we had another cold snap last night. However, I think the plants made it through just fine (fingers crossed!). I gave them a watering this afternoon (it was 60 outside during the day) and they seemed happy.

Definitely will order more ground cover from here in the future, as I have lots more ground to cover. :-)
