Phlox paniculata ‘David’
at Digging Dog
Chockfull of oomph and charisma wherever they reside, even in a bouquet, these floriferous Phlox are enduring warm weather beacons, appreciating moist but well drained soil, deadheading, deep basal waterings and thinning to just four or six stalks.
Our offerings are renowned not only for their lavish floral pageantry, but their unwavering mildew resistance as well.
Phlox paniculata ‘David’
Back in 1987, F. M. Mooberry of The Brandywine Conservancy had the keen eye to spot this outstanding, chance P. paniculata seedling and named it after her husband.
A quintessential summertime border plant, ‘David’ is highly prized for his lustrous greenery and huge, long blooming fragrant flowers. Shapely triangular trusses illuminated in classic white stand some 6 to 9 in. tall, and nearly as wide, on erect stems with narrow, dark green bristle-edged leaves that are arranged in pairs.
Size: 3-1/2'–4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
Celebrated headliners of the late show!
Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
