Morning everyone. I want to tidy the moss phlox up as it’s taking over the rockery but twice now I have been thwarted by my family of frogs who seem to have taken up residency 🐸 #wildlifewednesday #frog #moss-phlox-candy-stripe

It startled me too. This is one of the babies, one of the adults (mother presumably) was in there too 🐸 @flof1952

Morning everyone. My #moss-phlox-candy-stripe has gone crazy, I was going to split it earlier in the year but circumstances prevented me from getting it done. It looks gorgeous though 💗

I’ve seen it often in the plant catalogues that arrive through the letter box far too often 🙄 but I’d never thought to buy it. I’m glad I’ve got it now though 🌸 @Auricula

Morning Clare and Julie, thanks, you can see why it’s often called carpet phlox. It looks even better when it’s fully open 💗 @clare2611 @juliesgarden

Morning Jane 👋 that’s so pretty. Do you think it would work between paving stones where the mortar has gone? Not to walk on but to soften the paving?

Wow i like that! I grew 9 bare root 'echinacea' last year that turned out to be pink moss phlox. Instead of binning them I donated them to raise money for charity earlier this year. 'Cos I'm nice like that 😀

Oh dear, there's not much difference between ecihnacea and moss phlox is there Graham 🙄😂😂😂 good on you for donating them to charity 👍

😂😂 no not much at all! @pelly if you looked to the horizon, you could have seen the cloud of steam coming out of my ears when I found out! Most spare plants, divisions or whatever go to raise money for people who need it, needed more than ever at a time like this ☺👍👍
