Phlox stolonifera ‘Variegata’

Summary

Phlox stolonifera ‘Variegata’ was the worst performing cultivar of creeping phlox in our trial. The initial plants were small and in poor health when they were planted. Unfortunately, only one plant survived the first winter, and it barely grew during the rest of the trial. Variegated plants are typically less vigorous than their fully green-leaved counterparts, but this cultivar is significantly worse than normal.
