Dave Epstein: Hi. This is Growing Wisdom. We’ve been filming with Scott LaFleur at Garden in the Woods today. And you know, we’re just about does this thing happen and I said, “Scott, what is that late blooming phlox with no mildo. Let’s do another video, so we’re going to do another video. Tell me about this.
Scott LaFleur: This is called Phlox Paniculata ‘Jeana’. And this was found growing in a stand of other phlox that covered with 0:27 but this one didn’t have any. It also had this really unique smaller flowers to it so it’s actually a naturally occurring hybrid that was pulled out and put in to plant production. Ad now you can get this at here Garden in the Woods or other garden centers as well.
Dave Epstein: And do they all bloom so late. I mean here we are in early October and this guy’s still going.
Scott LaFleur: Yeah. it’s definitely a very late bloomers as far as the Phlox Paniculata go. And there’s a rage with phlox paniculata from early bloomers to very late. And this one definitely falls in the very late end.
Dave Epstein: And speaking of late, there are a couple of other things in this bed that you happen to point out that you like. So tell me about those two.
Scott LaFleur: I think they make great companions. We had the blue wood aster which is a dry shade growing wood aster which is fantastic, late bloomer. And then we also have over here the Chasmanthium Latifolium the northern sea oats which is just beautiful with the lower sun this time of the year. The way it hits this dangling oats, it really kind of make some sparkle and shine and it look great as they start to get more browned oat as well.
Dave Epstein: All three of these are sort of similar conditions?
Scott LaFleur: Correct.
Dave Epstein: So they could all be planted near each other as they are here at Garden in the Woods.
Scott LaFleur: Correct.
Dave Epstein: Well, there you go. Three other plants for some great fall color and fall interest and I bet that COC even looks good in the winter.
Scott LaFleur: It makes a great cot flower too.
Dave Epstein: Awesome. Well, thanks Scott and I’m going to get this phlox. This is a great phlox. No mildo. You don’t have to treat it.
