Polemonium ‘Northern Lights’

Dwarf Jacob’s Ladder

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.427.310

A sterile selection of Jacob’s Ladder, this variety will not self seed all over the garden.

Excellent resistance to powdery mildew. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Easily divided in early spring or fall.
