Polemonium yezoense 'Bressingham Purple' - NEW
Beautiful flowers of deep electric lavender-blue appear in late spring/early summer, rising in elegant clusters on graceful, sturdy burgundy stems above the attractive mounds of fern like foliage. Highly decorative fernlike leaves are neat, uniform and symmetrical, like most varieties of Jacob’s Ladder, but with a colorful twist: The foliage takes on a rich, dark purple hue in spring and again in Autumn. In between, the leaves turn somewhat greener or even fully green in summer, depending on light intensity. A selection from the famous UK breeder, Adrian Bloom. The scented blue flowers arranged in ladder like pairs during spring and summer above the ferny purplish/green foliage. Lamium, Ajuga and Viola are lovely complementary plantings with Polemonium.
