The disadvantages of growing creeping phlox from seed

0 10

Annual phlox is widely available from many seed companies and comes in an array of colors, from pastels to bold primary shades. Unlike creeping phlox, which can take years to mature, annual phlox grows quickly and can easily be sowed directly into your garden in early spring to provide you with flowers all summer. It also self-seeds, so while it is an annual, you may only need to plant it once to enjoy it for years to come. 

Annual phlox grows best in full sun to part shade and appreciates acidic or neutral soil pH. While it is native to Texas, it grows well during summer months in zones 2 through 11. As with most other phlox varieties, annual phlox is a hit with butterflies and hummingbirds and is impressively drought tolerant once established. As wonderful as annual phlox is, though, it is not the same as perennial creeping phlox.
