Phlox paniculata 'Jeana' (Polemoniaceae)
Mt. Cuba Center calls this "Without a doubt, the best-performing Phlox" in their extensive trial. A distinctive and mildew-resistant form of P. paniculata found by Jeana Prewitt near Nashville, TN. Summer brings globular clusters of bubble-gum-pink flowers which are much smaller and more numerous than those of the species. Blooms last from midsummer into September, and are highly attractive to butterflies and other pollinators. Site in moist, well-draining soils in full to part sun for most robust and floriferous plants.
