A Butterfly Magnet
Domed clusters of densely packed, lilac pink florets are butterfly magnets! Touted as maintaining outstanding mildew resistance and receiving the most butterfly visits during a 2-year study at Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware. This study at their botanical gardens was done by 15 volunteers of the Pollinator Watch Team who conducted weekly observations over a two-year period of over 94 selections of different Phlox species. Jeana with 539 butterfly visits was by far the most popular for butterflies especially eastern tiger swallowtails. Studies were done to determine why; however, they found nothing conclusive. Its nectar is no different from other Phlox. Phlox Jeana was discovered by Jeana Prewitt along the Harpeth River in Nashville, Tennessee. Garden Phlox add a punch of color and heady fragrance to any summer border. When most plants are on their summer siesta; Garden Phlox, known as the backbone of the perennial border, provide a range of welcome color. A showstopper in the garden or your favorite vase. Top-Notch Mildew Resistance!

Phlox General Information

Phlox paniculata provide unsurpassed flowering in summer, clear crisp colors and fragrant flowers in profusion. Good cut flower, a choice selection for the colder zones. We specifically carry disease-resistant Phlox varieties. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Phlox Plant Care

Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Phlox can be divided every 3-5 years in spring or fall. In spring, just as new growth appears, dig up the plant and divide clump with a sharp knife or spade into at least 2 or 3 shoots and a portion of the root system. Plants divided in fall should be mulched with a 4-6 layer of straw or pine needles to prevent heaving. Remove mulch in early spring. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off spent blooms just above foliage. To help avoid the possibility of mildew; provide plants with good air circulation (in spring, snip out all but 4-6 stems in a mature clump), avoid drought-like conditions, site plants where they will get sufficient light of six hours or more each day. Should a spray program become necessary, products exist on the market for prevention and control. Removing mature blooms will prevent seeding, if not desired. Clean up spent foliage in spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
