HOW TO GROW THEM

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Flower Festival -

Na­tive to North Amer­ica, moss phlox (Phlox sub­u­lata) per­forms best in cool cli­mates. It likes full sun but can tol­er­ate part shade, and well-drained soil. Vig­or­ous and low main­te­nance, moss phlox is frost tol­er­ant and drought hardy once es­tab­lished. Grow it as a ground­cover or in rock­eries. It looks great on slop­ing banks or cas­cad­ing over re­tain­ing walls. But it does like to spread, so you may want to grow it in containers.
