Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe', reportedly from the late Woodbank Nursery in Tasmania, is one of the best, most memorable selections of our US native phlox that I've ever seen. The soft, evergreen, needle-like foliage of this durable, drought-tolerant rock garden (high class) or ditchbank (lower class) groundcover is topped with round flowers, each carefully striped pink and white like a candy cane...a real hummingbird treat. Although Phlox 'Candy Stripe' flowers heaviest in spring, it usually reflowers in fall...superb!
