I wish you could show pics, too. Our irises are blooming like crazy; and, I've divided and spread (and purchased) so many in the last 10 years that they nearly encircle the yard. The roses are starting to bloom (tiny blossoms), the bachelor's buttons are starting to bloom, and the sweet basil and dandilions are still abloom. (Should I pout because your list is longer than my list?)

BTW: I looked for some bedding phlox and found none, here in Derby. Haven't made it into Wichita, yet, and everything is probably pretty well gone up there, by now. Obviously, too much time has been spent Red Crossing! ; )

By bedding phlox, so you mean creeping phlox, or are you talking about the taller phlox? I could send you creeping phlox as it breeds readily here!

I meant creeping phlox in plant form, as opposed to seeds. Does it seed?

bogie

I have no idea whether creeping pholx seeds (tall phlox certainly does). It most commonly reproduces around here by pieces breaking off and rooting, or questing roots from the mother plant.

What color or colors are you looking for!

You have astonishing gardens, Bogie! What a great list of bloomers to start the warm season. You've reminded me to go check out my lily of the valley. Thanks!

bogie

You are welcome Buffy - they are so unassuming most of the time, it is easy to forget they bloom in the spring.

Any color(s) would be great!

bogie

I'll see what I can do. Actually, I know I can send you a bunch, it's a matter of when it happens!

Oh, thank you, Bogie. No hurry. Our yard is a work in progress (slow progress) that will outlast me, at least!
