Phlox Subulata Candy Stripe, also known as Moss Pink or Creeping Phlox, is a low-growing, evergreen perennial with striking pink and white striped flowers. With a mat-forming habit, this showy perennial is often used for rockeries, on slopes, and in flower borders. Similar to other varieties of Moss Phlox, Phlox Subulata Candy Stripe is enveloped by masses of tiny flowers in late spring. This particular cultivar got its ‘Candy Stripe’ name for the striking display of candy pink blossoms striped with white. The dainty flowers remain for 3 to 4 weeks before dropping. Although completely hidden during the flowering season, the evergreen foliage offers interest for the better part of the year. Tiny, needle-like green leaves form a dense, carpet-like mound that is ideal as a ground cover.

While Moss Pink tolerates dappled shade, it will thrive in a location where it is exposed to full sun. Tolerant of drought once established, this evergreen perennial performs best in well-drained, fertile soil. Good drainage is essential when growing Phlox, as it has a dense root system that tends to rot when planted in a waterlogged soil.
Native to North America, Creeping Phlox Candy Stripe is fully hardy in Britain and Ireland, even in areas with severe winters. This robust perennial requires no sheltering, and as it is salt resistant and doesn’t mind strong winds, it is often found in coastal gardens throughout the UK. 
A vigorous, low-growing perennial with a mat-forming habit, Phlox Subulata Candy Stripe is easy to grow and care for. Although no pruning is required, if you want to rejuvenate the plant, trim it back after the flowering season. Staying compact as it matures, this evergreen perennial grows to be around 10 centimetres high, and up to 50 centimetres wide. 
Low-maintenance, with evergreen foliage and a showy display of summer blossoms, Creeping Phlox Candy Stripe is ideal for covering unseemly patches of ground in your garden. When planted along walkways, the carpet-like mounds of this flowering perennial act as a lush, vivid path border. As it tolerates drier conditions, Moss Pink is often planted in gravel or rocky gardens, where its blossoms add colour and texture to the landscape.
