Phlox ‘Minnie Pearl’
at Digging Dog

Phlox

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 ‘Minnie Pearl’ full sun

A natural occurring hybrid between Phlox maculata and possibly Phlox glaberrima, this fabulous mildew resistant Phlox is the happy outcome of a chance roadside sighting in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. Remaining unblemished all season, the long narrow, fresh green glossy leaves clothe compact sturdy stems, bolstering droves of large rounded clusters with sweetly scented crisp white flowers.

Well-suited for the front lines or where space is scarce, ‘Minnie Pearl’s virtues are plentiful: lengthy bloom time, short upright stance, slow spreading, pest free habit and fantastic flowers that beguile the butterflies and hummingbirds and look fetching in a bouquet.

Blooms mid-April–June.

Size: 12"–18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

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.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
