phlox coral flame ( BareRoot Plant) Groundcover flowers
- This outstanding dwarf selection from the FLAME™ series is one of the shortest yet introduced. It forms a bushy mound, perfect for near the front of a sunny border or in mixed containers. The large clusters of fragrant flowers are vibrant coral-red, starting in midsummer. Remove faded blooms to encourage more buds. Attractive to butterflies. Flowering is always best in a sunny location. Reported to have good resistance to powdery mildew. From Bartels Breeding in the Netherlands.
Dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the bare root. Set the plant such that the crown is at or just slightly below the ground level. Allow roots to fan out from the crown at around a 45 degree angle. Roots should spread out separately, like stretched fingers, from the crown, and not bunch up.
Bare root plants arrived on time and in good condition. There were no planting instructions included? I do not know the health of the plants because they have not sprouted yet or if they will this year?
