RED PHLOX NATIONWow wee! If you're into Phlox like we are, discover what we just discovered. Perennial Pleasures Nursery in East Hardwick is Phlox crazy! They have an annual Phlox Fest in early August with tours, tea, and, get this, doorprizes! Doorprizes rock!
Anyway, catch more info at their splendid site (nice slideshow) , which will give you directions, tour times and even the history of, yup, you guessed it - Phlox!
Oh - why does GardenVt love Phlox?
Because they come in ten million colors and usually don't need staking, which is a bonus for working gardeners like us.
