Phlox paniculata ‘Nicky' ('Dusterlohe')’
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.

Earning four stars at the Chicago Botanic Gardenís Phlox trials, this well-endowed beauty premiers large scented pyramidal trusses poised in glamorous repose atop stiff steadfast stems and slender lance-shaped green leaves. Dark pinkish purple shades, which intensify as the plant matures, saturate the tightset velvet-rich flowers, composed of individual florets, each with a tubular corolla and 5 flat petal-like lobes. A popular attraction for winged visitors and a perfect choice for bouquets, ‘Nicky’ can be planted near Filipendula rubra ‘Venusta’ and Eupatorium ‘Gateway’.

Blooms July-September

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
