I have never grown creeping phlox but this particular cultivar looked better than many of the others in the nursery so I thought I'd give it a try. So far, although planted in a well-drained bed in 100+ temperatures in 7b OKC, it seems to be adapting well. Would love to hear what others have to say about it.
