The best phlox, and more (a tale of woe!)...

One last shot of the phlox--this time in the garden of the indomitable head Propagator and Curator of Steppe collections at Denver Botanic Gardens! You can pretty much gauge a garden's status in Denver by how big of a patch of Phlox nana they boast! I am deeply chagrined that Lauren and Scott Ogden, the Haywards, Bone and Mike Kintgen are far ahead of me in the Phlox nana department! The only issue that Phlox nana has had in the past is that nurseries had not determined how to propagate it in sufficient quantities: David Salman has cracked the code, and Phlox nana will now be reliably available, although only from High Country Gardens (until we can get Plant Select to take note that is...!)

(P.S.--this is not a paid solicitation! I just want to keep that fabulous nursery chugging along!)
