Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripled in Growth the 2nd Year Yes, these were on the small side when I received them a few years ago. I planted and only got a few blooms that year but a lot of growth. The second year, I could not believe it was the same plant. The root tripled in size and I had to replant it towards the end of the summer as it had outgrown the 12 in container I initially planted them in ( I planted one plant per 12" container). The blooms were none stop last summer starting about midsummer until frost. Be patient with perennials as they last a long time and hardly ever perform the first year like they do the years to come. Thank you again Cottage Farms for such an ever blooming beauty that I could add to my garden.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't grow at all Planted these the first day they came in and have had phlox before and always had good luck so I know how to care for it. Planted in full sun and watered every other day. It hasn't grown one bit this season. It's barely staying Alive. The size of the plants were super small too. You will have better luck buying phlox in a potted container from your local nursery. Because it will be five times the size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small plugs but very healthy These came well packaged and very healthy looking. A tad tiny, but I planted them and they are growing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Tiny One would have to hope for survival to get anything you could see in the garden next year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from seriously I have bought from Cottage farms in the past and had minimal trouble, but the plants that just arrived are a joke , The plugs were way too small, i really doubt that they will grow 3 of them were less then one inch tall O.o my mulch is deeper then that. The other 9 were not much bigger. I really dont think they will be worth the price i paid for them. I am not happy Cottage farms i had a better opinion of your products but now i think i will reconsider.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arrived in Good Shape These arrived in good shape the roots were still wet and i planted right away. Only gave 3 stars because I think the price is high for plugs. Well heres hoping they spread the way Philip says they will.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cottage farm ground cover plants When the plants arrived, I opened right away. They were so small and many were dry and brown. I planted them to see if they might possibly grow. They have not grown, but by the look and size of them it will take many years to look like the picture shown. I hope the other plants I ordered come alive and grow as they looked like on QVC.
