Polemonium reptans 'Touch of Class'

Jacob's ladder - Variegated

This beautiful finely textured perennial has delicate lacy foliage that forms a low mound.  The compound leaves are green with a narrow, bright white edge.  From early to midsummer, a plethora of pink buds open to reveal small, very pale blue flowers.  After it is finished blooming, the plant may need to be cut back to allow for a fresh flush of foliage.
