PEPPERMINT CANDY is a trademark (not a cultivar name) for a half-hardy annual. http://www.tandmwholesale.com/PhloxPeppermintCandy

This is a half hardy annual bred for container use, grown from seed. Thompson & Morgan is the breeder and seed distributor. T & M and Fleuroselect call this "Phlox hybrida compacta", whatever that means---it isn't a valid name.
