Trees are valuable and beautiful assets to the environment and to any landscape, and black walnut trees are no exception. They are lovely trees that provide delicious and nutritious nuts and one of the most valuable hardwoods. They are allelopathic, however, and many gardeners avoid them or get rid of them.

A gorgeous Phlox dicaricata selection, 'Blue Moon' has fragrant blue-lavender blooms that remain in peak condition for at least 4 weeks in spring. Blooms are lightly fragrant and are an excellent early nectar source for butterflies. Bees seem to ignore phlox in general. Foliage is glossy and attractive. Not drought tolerant.

I was surprised to see a little piece of this in bloom. I thought they were goners. They don'y do well for me due to my soil drying out so quickly.

Put into the ground in the East bed with plants from Mother Earth Gardens. One group is behind the water barrel; the other is against the wall behind taller flowers.
