Polemonium reptans ‘Stairway to Heaven’


Creeping Jacob’s Ladder

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.427.560


Simply the best variegated Jacob’s Ladder ever introduced. This forms a low mound of medium-green ferny leaves, each leaflet strongly edged in creamy white and flushed with pink during cooler spring weather. Clusters of lightly fragrant violet-blue bells rise taller in mid to late spring. New fresh leaves continue to appear all season, keeping this variety looking good from spring through late fall. Ideal for edging a shady border or growing beside a woodland path. Appreciates average to moist soil conditions. Afternoon shade is recommended in warm summer regions. Trim back the flower stems as soon as blooming is finished. Introduced by the New England Wildflower Society. USPP#15187, CPBR#3113: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
