Phlox paniculata 'Jeana' is a cultivar of Phlox paniculata, a tall, upright phlox species that blooms from mid to late summer. The 'Jeana' cultivar was named for its discoverer, Jeana Prewitt, who found the cultivar occurring naturally within its native range in Tennessee.
'Jeana' typically grows to about five feet tall, and produces clusters of small pink flowers from July to September. The cultivar is sun-loving and naturally resistant to powdery mildew, which has earned it a spot in Mt. Cuba Center's Top Performers, under the title of Best Phlox for Sun. 'Jeana' still holds this title with a score of 4.8 out of 5, which means exceptionally high performance in both horticultural and ecological testing.
Blossoms are lightly fragrant and attract pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and they also make for great cut flowers.
