Bring the stunning Scarlet Flame Carpet Phlox to your garden for a burst of vibrant color and practical, beneficial beauty. It is the perfect choice for any gardener looking to add beauty and function to their landscape. This groundcover is as functional as it is stunning, perfect for transforming any landscape.


A Vibrant Groundcover Solution: Scarlet Flame Carpet Phlox forms a dense, colorful mat that not only beautifies your garden but also acts as a living weed suppressant. Its low-growing nature and bright, scarlet-red blooms create a striking carpet of color that spreads effortlessly over rocks and garden edges.

Thrives in Challenging Conditions: This hardy phlox prefers full sun and well-drained soils, making it an excellent choice for sandy or gravelly areas. Once established, it is drought tolerant, ensuring that your garden remains vibrant even during dry spells. Its ability to thrive in less-than-ideal conditions makes it a versatile and resilient addition to your landscape.

Resistant to Pests and Elements: Scarlet Flame Carpet Phlox is deer resistant, so you can enjoy its beauty without the worry of browsing animals. Additionally, its salt tolerance makes it a perfect choice for coastal gardens or areas exposed to road salt, ensuring your groundcover remains lush and healthy year-round.
