This Made the Hot List

The color radiant orchid is one of the top trends the Philadelphia Flower Show has identified as part of its first-annual Hot List. Find out why & learn more in this excerpt from the 2014 Hot List.

Carpet phlox is the most beloved and popular ground cover available. This Emerald Pink variety produces a profusion of clear pink flowers that creep over rocks and down banks, making a romantic and dense blanket that defies the need to break out the mower--and stays lush and colorful throughout the growing season!

Cottage Farms 9 pc Emerald Pink Carpet Phlox Groundcover is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad I bought These looked so tiny when I got them, have been following the directions and they have gotten even smaller and appear to be dying. Have planted appx 10-15 types of plants this year and they all are thriving except these. Was very surprised because ground cover usually grows like weeds

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POORLY SHIPPED The plants were poorly shipped and very dry upon delivery. I tried to care for them in the most horticultural manner, but more than 9 have passed on to rubbish. Will send pics shortly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I have had these for over 6 weeks and they are the exact same size as when I received them... Which is only a"small plug" size. I planted per the instructions and have taken care of them per the guide.... Yet they have not grown at all. The warranty does me no good, because I will just receive the same Plants that don't grow. I hope someone actually reads this and does something.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never growing plant I planted four of these as per the instructions. Watered them daily. Two died and the remaining two haven't grown. It's been 3 months. They werent healthy plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled I had high hopes for this product; unfortunately nothing grew. They arrived in OK condition, and I planted them as instructed. They then died within a couple weeks of planting. Better to go to local nursery I guess and get ones that are more developed. Might as well have thrown the almost $25 away. Although a completely different plant, (ground cover versus flowers) their daylilies are great - no blooms on mine yet - but just on the verge. Much wiser choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replacement not growing! Last year i ordered this set and almost all were brown upon arrival. I emailed cottage farms but got no response. By complete surprise about a month ago a new set arrived after a year. This set looked much greener (except one dead one) so i planted them in ground. I live in the mountains of Southern California which is zone 9. I fertilized and watered as instructed and now the tips are turning brown. I even use miracle grow soil for best results. I will continue to nurture but don't know if these just need to be bigger than a plug before they ship to customers so their a bit more hardy I wll keep my fingers crossed they start to grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bea utiful color I purchased these last year and yes they are a delicate plug but they have grown considerably in a years time and this year they are in full bloom and are beautiful. I have ordered more to add to them this year. I did not start them in a pot and I planted them in an area behind my house that is gravel and the ground not the best and they have done great.
