Plant Type: Perennials

This is an improved form of Polemonium 'Stairway to Heaven' with foliage that has brighter, whiter variegation with a more silvery appearance, making it a sun loving plant. Pink buds burst open to silvery blue flowers that bloom in abundance in the spring making it even more of an eye-catcher! Since this is a native plant, it withstands the extremes of cold, heat and humidity.
