Phlox ‘Minnie Pearl’
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 ‘Minnie Pearl’
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.
Size: 12"–18" high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
