Creeping Phlox is easy to grow, easy to propagate and sells like crazy! We potted the phlox in this pot last summer and they over wintered perfectly and bloomed like crazy this spring.
Creeping Phlox can be propagated in the early spring via division, simply dig up a clump and separate the roots into small pieces and re-plant the roots. Trim the tops a bit in the process so the roots do not have to support a great deal of top growth.
Creeping Phlox can also be rooted in mid to late summer using cuttings that have started to harden off a bit. Detailed information about Summer Propagation Can Be Found Here.
Creeping Phlox is very hardy and does well in growing zones 3 through 9 which is much wider range than many other plants.
Personally I don’t propagate Phlox because I can buy plugs by the tray for just 92 cents each and it makes it much easier to just buy them. We propagate a Ton of Flowering Shrubs and Evergreens from Cuttings that it’s nice to just call the wholesale grower and order many of the perennials that we sell. In the size container that you see here we sell those at $5.97 each and they sell like crazy.
People ask me where they can buy perennials like I do for as little as 92 cents each and I can only share Wholesale Sources Inside of Our Members Area. And our members go crazy buying thousands and thousands of perennials from these wholesale growers to re-sell at a nice profit.
Having a plant like Creeping Phlox in your nursery is a great way to attract customer who are likely to buy a lot more while they are there. It’s also a great item to sell wholesale. Landscapers and garden centers buy Creeping Phlox in one gallon containers by the thousands!
