2104: Bought (5) plants from Bayside Garden Center. Planted in the front bed along the perimeter edge.

2015: The moss phlox were not doing well…they had not grown at all in a year and looked wimpy. I moved them to the backyard bed where they would get more sun, hoping they will be happier. Worried that maybe they won’t do well in my clay soil.
