It's easy to imagine these pretty blooms all along a mid to late season border, cutting through the summer's lingering heat with their cool-toned bicolor. In fact, with a mass of these all together, the little burst of color around each bloom's center look like polka dots! Blue Ice's blooms are accompanied by that classic spicy tall phlox fragrance. It's such an easy way to dress up your home--keep Blue Ice in your cutting garden and mix it into your fresh flower arrangements as a perfumed accent. You can also add it to a container garden as a special treat for passing butterflies.

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.
Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.
