Creeping Jacob’s Ladder

An easy and colourful low-growing perennial, this forms a mound of sage-green ferny leaves, each leaflet neatly edged in white. Clusters of lightly fragrant pale-blue bells rise taller in mid to late spring opening from pinkish buds. 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. A sport of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ introduced by Sunny Border Nurseries of Connecticut. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
