While the selection of phlox cultivars is impressive, some of the other perennials for sale are hardly "pleasures" The owner was raving about mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris, which is a nasty invasive in much of the East, as well as a giving many people allergic reactions as strong as ragweed. This nursery is also selling Saponaria officinalis "Flore pleno" which is also extremely aggressive and can never be eradicated. Nurseries need to be more responsible in selling so many species, or at least warn customers of the potential hazards.
