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.

Phlox paniculata ‘Nicky' ('Dusterlohe')’ full sun

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.

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.
