Product Details

Candy Store® Coral Crème Drop's color is bound to be delicious: rosy coral petals highlighted with white and a deep-pink eye. Its long-blooming and sweetly fragrant flower clusters are closely packed on compact, well-branched plants. From the Netherlands, this hardy series was bred specifically for their compact habit, attractive leaf and flower coloration, and good disease resistance. 'Ditomdre' PP 20,907

Phlox is a genus best known for garden perennials, but it includes showy, long-blooming annuals worth growing. Newer varieties produce even more flowers and tolerate summer heat. Provide average, well-drained soil and fertilize regularly.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Unusual bold color

I planted this last summer - grew vigorously and bloomed in August. Boy oh boy what a color! It is a yellowish pink - very intense and, at first, I didn’t know if I liked it. I’ve never had such an unusual color in my garden. I can’t wait to see if it reseeds. Now I’m searching for another phlox to complement it. I loved the dark foliage too.

Gorgeous and delicious smelling

Gorgeous phlox, smelled wonderfully and was a great addition to my other phlox. This one was not quite as hardy as some of my white phlox, but it could also be that this past year was its first. Looking forward to it blooming again this spring/summer!

Absolutely a garden must have.

I put this in the front of my garden and it produces wonderful late summer to fall color. Blooms it's little heart out. Just when you think it is over here it comes again. Love this.

Great color

The plant has great color and stays in bloom a long time. A little slow to get started though, could have been the weather.

Latin Name Pronunciation: floks  

This important genus of valuable garden plants includes reliable and colorful species that bloom both early and late, in sun and shade, and in a range of rich colors that is equaled by few other genera. Most Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South) and moist, well-drained soil.

P. divaricata laphamii is at its best in partial shade and in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Plants prefer soil with a slightly acid to neutral pH. They have an informal habit and root where the stems touch the ground, allowing them to form a ground cover where conditions suit them. Cut flowering stems to the ground after the blooms fade to keep plants looking tidy.

P. paniculata and, to a lesser extent, P. carolina and P. maculata are susceptible to powdery mildew, especially in dry soil. Water deeply during dry spells to reduce the incidence of disease, and dust with sulfur (available at most garden centers) beginning in early summer. Thinning half of the shoots when 6″ tall in spring (to allow better air circulation) also helps keep mildew at bay and encourages plants to produce larger and longer-lasting flower heads.

Divide P. paniculata every few years, replanting sections from the edge of the clump and discarding the woody center.
