Common Name: Jacob's Ladder Family: Polemoniaceae (The Phlox Family)

Polemonium reptans 'Stairway to Heaven'
Zoom In Photo:

Dramatic vivid green foliage surrounded by a cream-coloured margin that turns pink in cool weather or full sun. Flowers are intense blue. Mounded in form and only a foot high. Broad, bold cream variegated foliage has 12' stems bearing the palest blue flowers from May to June. The leaves are lusciously tinted with pink during cool periods or in full sun. This is a strong and quite hardy variegated selection that has impressed us at the nursery.
