Phlox 'Jeana' (paniculata group)
This is a mildew-resistant variety with crisp, clean foliage and small, sweetly scented flowers that last for weeks in late summer and early fall. Wonderful branching habit on this new introduction discovered by Jeana Prewitt of Nashville, TN. This one is a magnet for butterflies. Lavender-pink flowers appear between August and September.
Garden Phloxes are one of the staples of a showy, late summer border, with large clusters of bright flowers. These plants have a reputation for being highly prone to mildew but selections have been developed that are resistant and they are a vast improvement. (The plants may still get mildew, but on a smaller percentage of the leaf area.)
Phlox divaricata and stolonifera are New England natives. We carry only cultivers, which is why they don’t appear on our New England Woodlander list.
