Garden phlox Interesting Notes

Butterflies go absolutely crazy for 'Jeana' in our trial and display gardens - check out our video, taken in summer 2013.

The genus name Phlox is derived from the Greek word for flame.

‘Jeana’ produces fragrant tubular lavender-pink florets (to 1/2” diameter) densely packed in large tiered terminal clusters (to 6" long) 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. Notwithstanding its attractive flowers, 'Jeana' stands out as having excellent resistance to powdery mildew. It was discovered by Jeana Prewitt along the Harpeth River in Nashville, Tennessee. It is an upright, conical perennial that typically grows in a clump to 2-4' tall and to 3' wide on stiff stems clad with narrow, opposite, pointed, elliptic, deep green leaves (to 4” long). - Missouri Botanical Garden
