Plant Features

According to many Polemonium connoisseurs, the Stairway to Heaven Polemonium Plant is the best variegated Jacob's Ladder ever introduced to the gardening world.  Cooler springtime temperatures produce the most beautiful pink blush along boldly edged leaves that will turn to creamy white, showing off medium-green, fern-like leaves as the temperatures warm to summer. In mid to late spring you can look forward to clusters of purplish-blue, delicately aromatic flowers. Stairway to Heaven puts forth fresh new leaves all through the season, providing striking foliage through late fall. This is the perfect variety of Jacob's Ladder to plant along a shady pathway or to fill a previously bare shady corner.

Companion Planting: Brunnera, Euphorbia, Ferns, Geum, Helleborus, Hosta
