Creeping phlox
I have creeping phlox in 2nd year. They bloomed very well this spring but as summer progresses some of the green is turning red. Is this because we are in a colder climate? And will they be okay next spring?

Hi, I don't know why they'd turn red, but if it helps, it took me a while to have success with this plant. Ultimately, I found a solution. These plants like good drainage so I planted them on an east-facing, slightly sandy slope and they have expanded tremendously.
