Phlox paniculata Jeana

Summer Phlox

Phlox paniculata 'Jeana' produces fragrant tubular lavender-pink florets densely packed in large tiered terminal clusters over a long July to October bloom period. Each individual floret has a long corolla tube and five flat petal-like lobes. Butterflies love the flowers and will choose this phlox over other varieties. Notwithstanding its attractive flowers, 'Jeana' stands out as having excellent resistance to powdery mildew. It is also sterile resukting in an exceptionally long bloom period. It was found growing along a river bank in Tenessee and was introduced by Jeana Pruitt of Nashville.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Phlox needs rich, well drained soil that does not dry out to look its best. It is a heavy feeder so a fall mulch with compost is beneficial to keep up the organic level in the soil. The varieties we sell have mildew resistant but do not overcrowd this plant. It needs good air circulation.
