How To Propose Crawling Phlox

Knowing how to propagate creeping phlox is very important. This specific species of plant thrives in humid climates. In the winter when the temperature is below freezing, this plant will change its appearance and grow green. The leaves will grow up to six inches long and it can reach a maximum height of twelve inches. The plant grows best when it is in full sun but does well even in partial shade or in a shaded area.

You have two options on how to propagate this particular species of plants. The first method is by actually touching the flowering plants and transferring them by hand. The second option is by making an airtight container out of a thick paper then putting the plants in. It should be placed in the refrigerator to keep the moisture level constant at approximately twenty degrees below zero. These early spring bulbs are not hardy and need a lot of care so it is best that you do them indoors during the winter season.

Caring for these plants is quite easy. They are fairly low maintenance and do well if you just give them good drainage. For watering make sure you do not over water. If you find that they are just dripping with moisture mist the leaves with a towel then cut off a few leaves so that the plant has fresh water only. Phlox can survive just about any kind of frost. However, you do not want to try and save on watering because it will be necessary to feed the plants if you want them to grow fully.

The plants are ideal for planting in partial shade. A dark colored pot works best, but any dark colored pot will work. However, if you have plants that are especially tall or have bushy stems you may need to add two leaves on top of each tall stem if you plant them in full sun.

Do not fertilize your plants unless you are trying to prevent rust. Rust will spread rapidly and your phlox can become affected as well. Do not use any pesticides when you are replanting your garden with phlox. You should leave the ground alone and allow it to go to seed.

When planting the plants, make sure that they are very tall and branched. The young leaves on the young stems will not be very effective in getting the phlox to spread. Some types of phlox are particularly effective when you replant roses. Rose planting is particularly effective with this plant because its small, blue blossoms are especially effective in pollinating roses.

You do not need to till the ground before planting your phlox because they tend to grow up rather slowly. If you have planted a perennial plant, you can cuttings of the plant and use these to replant your garden. Cuttings of a phlox tree will usually be several inches long. Cutting the stem just above the soil line will allow the roots to form a strong root system. A very strong root system is especially effective in protecting the young stems of the phlox from becoming wilt and breaking off.

The most effective method of growing this plant is by planting it in full sun. The best time to plant it is late spring through early summer when temperatures are warm. Phlox has tiny blooms which will bloom at the end of August and September. In July and August you will see the most spectacular growth and the plant is extremely bushy. In July and August you can expect the plant to produce its fruits at the end of August or September.
