The Q&A Archives: Phlox

Question: Living In Florida, my soil is very sandy. I am looking for a plant that will cover a lot of ground in my front yard. I like the look of the creeping phlox, but does it so well in mostly sandy soil or even in my zone? Is there another direction you can point me in?

Answer: Jessica,
Creeping phlox can be grown in a sandy soil with some bright shade or morning sun and some compost mixed into the soil. Keep the soil moist.
