Garden Phlox is a staple of the late summer and early fall garden and ‘Jeana’ is a super-rewarding cultivar of it to grow. It provides wonderful color with its bright pink, aromatic flower clusters, attractive to people, butterflies and hummingbirds alike. Named after a woman in Nashville who identified this genotype, ‘Jeana’ is most famous for its extra long bloom time (July-October) and for excellent resistance to powdery mildew. However, we feel that its real claim to fame should be that is is covered with butterflies at all times throughout its bloom period. ‘Jeana’ thrives in full sun to part shade, shade in the afternoon being best. Even though resistant to powdery mildew, ‘Jeana’ should be spaced for maximum air circulation, and prevented from drying out with deep mulch. The USDA distribution map linked below is for the species, Phlox paniculata.
