I Live in Ohio and Want to Plant Creeping Phlox
What temperature to plant? It is supposed to get to freezing tonight. Is this too cold to plant now?

This has been a very unusual winter for sure, unseasonably mild most everywhere, and now the onset of frost and freeze is threatening many of the plants that have set buds or blooms. While it's a fairly hardy plant (cold hardy to zone 3), I would certainly wait until the threat of freezing temps have ceased before planting creeping phlox.
