Product Details

Product Details

From renowned Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf comes this intriguing, mildew resistant form of our elegant native. The flowers open a deep blue with white eyes and take on purplish shades during the heat of midday, then regain their original indigo coloring in the evening. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds and their spicy vanilla-clove perfume is perfectly enchanting in bouquets. Grow in average soil that doesn't dry out.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Great Color

Christine from Natick, Mass

I have about eight different phlox in my garden and this one blooms the earliest and lasts the longest. David's White is a close second.

It goes with everything!

Linda from Sarver, PA

I love this phlox. In the cool morning and evening, it is blue and in the heat of the day, it is violet. It is easy to grow, no bugs or disease. I don't even baby it with water. It seems to go with every color in the garden. I grow it around Club Candy lily and have orangy peach day lilies on either side. Everyone comments on this phlox!

Vibrant color and drought-hardy, too!

Charsmama from Atlanta, GA

This plant really surprised me. Phlox doesn't always fare so well in Atlanta gardens; the extremes of drought and high humidity can punish these plants. But 'Blue Paradise", now in its second year, held its blooms for an extended period. Plus, that color is remarkable and contrasted beautifully with the oranges, yellows and reds of the zinnias I planted with it. Seeing that bright bluish-purple outside my kitchen window just made my day! I am ordering more, and I suspect that if I plant it in my front yard, neighbors will ring my doorbell to learn its name.

great color and performance

Jackie F. from Erie PA

The color seems to change according to the sun's position. In the am it is the deepest azure blue but by late afternoon it appears magenta. It is gorgeous against my chocolate elderberry-sambucca. It has been in for three years and has gone from six stalks to ten. I will order more this fall. Highly recommend.

Pretty Blue

Pat from Knoxville,TN

I planted one of these in a bank bed in my front yard with my Double Pink Knock Out Roses peeking out between my Walker's Low Catmint.Have more on the way.Mine is a few shades lighter than the one pictured,but true blue.Fairly drought tolerant.You will not be disappointed.

Pronunciation: floks  

This important genus of valuable garden plants includes reliable and colorful species that bloom both early and late, in sun and shade, and in a range of rich colors that is equaled by few other genera. Most Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South) and moist, well-drained soil.

P. divaricata laphamii is at its best in partial shade and in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Plants prefer soil with a slightly acid to neutral pH. They have an informal habit and root where the stems touch the ground, allowing them to form a ground cover where conditions suit them. Cut flowering stems to the ground after the blooms fade to keep plants looking tidy.

P. paniculata and, to a lesser extent, P. carolina and P. maculata are susceptible to powdery mildew, especially in dry soil. Water deeply during dry spells to reduce the incidence of disease, and dust with sulfur (available at most garden centers) beginning in early summer. Thinning half of the shoots when 6″ tall in spring (to allow better air circulation) also helps keep mildew at bay and encourages plants to produce larger and longer-lasting flower heads.

Divide P. paniculata every few years, replanting sections from the edge of the clump and discarding the woody center.
