An outstanding and colorful new cultivar sporting green leaves with white leaf margins that are tinged with pink. Pale lavender blue, 3/4 inch bell-shaped flowers with white stamens are produced from early through midsummer. This selection is larger and has a looser habit than the other varieties.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easy to grow, polemoniums prefer a cool, moist environment with protection from afternoon sun. Deadheading will encourage sporadic reblooming in late summer. Though it seldom needs to be divided, it may be done in spring or fall.
