When can I transplant creeping phlox? They are really thick.
Hardiness Zone: 6a
By Pat from New Boston, MI
Creeping phlox should be transplanted in the Spring, right after they quit blooming.

I would imagine if you have phlox that thick, it must be 3+ years old or loves where it is growing. I would advise taking clumps out by sections and transplanting it within the next few weeks. If there are a few flowers, I wouldn't worry about it. Just plant your babies in an area similar to the conditions where it is growing now. Please let me know how it goes and what type soil and conditions that you are growing it now. Good luck. (09/07/2005)
