Polemonium Bressingham Purple
An attractive herbaceous perennial suitable for part to full shade gardens as a ground cover. Deep electric lavender-blue flowers develop during spring and summer above the highly decorative purple-green fern-like foliage. Leaves appear ladder-like, hence the common name – Jacob’s ladder. Slender purple stems clothed with purple leaves carry clusters of cupped flowers, creating an attractive upright clump that flowers for months.
