Not all phlox touted as mildew resistant turn out to be, as many of you might agree, truly resistant, but I can assure you that ‘Jeana’ is exceptional in this regard. It has grown healthily and happily for me in a dry, poor site for several years, with not a speck of mildew to date. The florets are quite small, arranged in abundant tight clusters, and seem to be unusually attractive to butterflies. The color is pinky-lavender, bordering on pale magenta. The stems are stout, and the leaves have a heavier substance than usual. Discovered in a Tennessee garden by Jeana Prewitt.
