Product Details

From renowned Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf comes Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise,' an intriguing 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.

Phlox paniculata (Garden Phlox) is the species that earned Phlox its reputation as an indispensable garden plant, and it's worth your while to have as many as possible to enliven your garden in late summer. These upright, often fragrant, favorites produce generous flower clusters that add weeks of carefree color to gardens in summer and fall. Plants in the species flower in a spectrum of shades that ranges from whites to pinks and purples to blues and reds to oranges. Fragrant varieties emit a subtle, sweet, delicious perfume. Pollinators will take notice.

The varied, versatile, and indispensable Phlox genus includes almost 70 species of perennials and annuals. The majority of these low-maintenance plants are native to North America where they can be found in a range of habitats from woodlands and meadows to rocky alpine areas. All have tubular flowers that attract hummingbirds, hummingbird moths (also called hawk moths), long-tongued bees and butterflies. Most have a spicy vanilla-clove perfume that delights us as well.

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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available.

Over time we have had such an excellent experience with WFF plants so we were very sorry indeed when this one didn't work out - it looked beautiful and an unusual color for phlox. It wasn't quite DOA when it came but we were sure it would revive. Unfortunately it hasn't. I'd like to know if we were just unlucky with this one, in which case I will order it again another season

One didn't make it through summer, other died later

The starts were very small. One was weak to begin with. It died by fall. The other put a couple leaves this spring, then also died. Had a bit of color the first year. Not blue,
although at the end of the bloom it was approaching that.

Coming back stronger second season

I enjoyed some blooms last year after planting this phlox, they were pretty. My plant looks bigger this year with more stems, looking forward to possibly more blooms.

Beyond a doubt the most gorgeous phlox I have ever seen, Very tall and large flowesr which look like hydrangeas. I will stake them next year as they have flopped over with the rain this season vs last year we had none and this wasn't a problem.

I was so excited to find this variety of Phlox and had to wait for shipment. Once they arrived, I followed all hints/tips and nurtured carefully. Of the two plants, neither survived.

Latin Name 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.
