Phlox divaricata ‘London Grove Blue’
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 divaricata ‘London Grove Blue’ full sun  partial shade  shade lover  new plant

Discovered by the astute folks from North Creek Nursery at a plant sale in London Grove, PA, this handsome shade-happy ground cover is a light blue flowering form of the eastern North American woodland Phlox. The sweetly fragrant 5-petaled blooms are held in loose clusters that lure the butterflies and hummingbirds, while widely spaced lance-shaped green foliage forms an attractive spreading compact clump, coloring fall days with burgundy shades. Appreciative of fertile, adequately moist, free draining abodes, ‘London Grove Blue’ mingles well with Aquilegia ‘Kristall’, Tiarella ‘Dark Star’ and Geranium phaeum ‘Album’.

Blooms April–May

Size: 12"–15" high x 10"–18" 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.
