|Phlox 'David's Lavender' with Clematis 'Rooguchi'|
Aside from a few tropicals, there isn't much else going on in my garden right now, so a smattering here and there of phlox is a good thing.
I've been really impressed with Clematis 'Rooguchi' this year, and if I were to give an award for the longest-blooming plant in my garden, it would definitely be in the running. (I'm pretty sure our groundhog can't reach or doesn't like the taste of this plant.)
I absolutely love the color of Phlox 'Blushing Shortwood'. Mostly white with a pretty blush of pinkish-lavender, it plays well with anything it's planted with, in this case an annual Salvia called 'Mystic Spires Blue'.
