Trial Garden

Phlox stolonifera ‘Pink Ridge’

5 Photos


Phlox stolonifera ‘Pink Ridge’ was one of the top-performing pink selections of creeping phlox in our trial. It was one of the most vigorous growers at the start of the trial and quickly developed a dense mat of foliage. Unfortunately, powdery mildew did cause some dieback, though it was not severe enough to kill any of the plants entirely. The pink flower color is similar to another top-performing cultivar called ‘Home Fires’.
