I’ll give you 3 reasons why you should have ‘Jeana’, a Summer Panicle Phlox, in your garden.
1. Long-blooming tresses of many small lilac sized florets, on 4-5′ stems, adorn this plant from mid July-September.
2. The foliage is highly resistant to mildew.
3. Butterflies favored ‘Jeana’ over all other Phlox paniculata selections in the trial gardens at the Mt. Cuba Center.
Phlox paniculata ‘Jeana’ is hardy in zones 4-8 and enjoys full sun. For a pleasing midsummer vignette, combine with white coneflowers or the yellow daisies of tall Rudbeckia nitida ‘Autumn Sun’, as well as the blue spires of mid-sized Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’ and for the front of the border airy and pollinator friendly Calamintha nepeta ssp nepeta.
