Moss phlox is a hardy and reliable perennial used mostly in rockeries and low walls, where it makes a fantastic cover of white, pink, red, purple, mauve or blue flowers in mid spring. Many varieties are evergreen. Many varieties are available in the market today and being quite similar they sometimes get difficult to differentiate among one another, yet each one has its tell.

Crackerjack is an eye-catching moss phlox variety producing bright magenta purple red flowers. It is a douglasii hybrid which means that the plants form quite a compact, symmetrical cushion with elevated centres. Blooming begins in late April and continues for 3-4 weeks. Needle-like leaves are short, fresh green, linear, and evergreen. In order to eliminate bare, woody stems in the central part we recommend trimming it in early summer just after flowering.

Grow moss phlox in full sun and free-draining soil of any pH. Once established they take long periods of droughts. Mulching is not necessary but covering the soil around the main clump with weed control fabric is advisable to keep the area around the plant weed-free. Reliably hardy to at least -34°C (USDA zone 4).
