Think you've seen and grown it all when it comes to summer-blooming phlox? Then wait til you meet 'Jeana'! It combines the easy-to-grow, long blooming traits you love with an almost supernatural ability to attract butterflies. Is it the color of the flowers? Their nectar content? We don't know, but we aren't complaining, because seeing is believing with this beauty. Plus, it offers excellent resistance to powdery mildew, a problem that often besets garden phlox.
'Jeana' makes an excellent cut flower, though once you see how it draws in the pollinators, perhaps you'll find you enjoy it even more in the garden. Be sure to plant it where you can enjoy it.
