Polemonium reptans 'Touch of Class'


Polemonium reptans 'Touch of Class' has green and white variegated foliage with pink flower buds that open to light blue, fragrant flowers.

Polemonium reptans 'Touch of Class' is an elegant super hardy perennial with variegated pinnate leaves of olive green complemented with fine white edging. Clusters of pink buds open to reveal fragrant, light blue, bell-shaped flowers in late spring to early summer. Trim flowers after blooming to promote more foliage and possible rebloom. A nice mounding habit of 10-16 inches tall with a 16-18 inch spread works its magic as an edger in the shady or woodland garden. Lovely in containers too. A sport of 'Stairway to Heaven'. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Deer resistant.
