Description If you're on the lookout for a stunning spring flower-studded groundcover, then look no further than 'Candy Stripe'! Come spring, Phlox subulata will cover your landscape in a blanket of fragrant, pink and white petals that hug the ground and cascade along hills.

Half died and no flowers

Half of the plants died and others are same size as I received them with not a bloom.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. We do offer a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your order within that time frame, please email photos of the plants to claims@greatgardenplants.com and we would be happy to refund or replace your order. These plants are spring blooming plants. Outside of spring, you will have lush, evergreen foliage. It is hard to say for certain why you haven't seen growth, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all play a role. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, you will see growth (and blooms!) in time. Happy Gardening!
