Polemonium reptans Touch of Class Jacob's Ladder



The variegated, lacy foliage of Polemonium 'Touch of Class' is beautiful enough to turn heads. The flowers are an added bonus! Rich pink buds open to reveal pale lavender-blue flowers in late spring to early summer.

Also called "Jacob's Ladder", Polemonium reptans is native to moist woodlands in many parts of the United States. In a garden, it thrives in cool, moist, humus-rich soil. It is attractive to butterflies, and deer and rabbits tend to avoid it.

This variegated variety of Jacob's Ladder is gorgeous in mass plantings, and is small enough for containers. Bring a 'Touch of Class' to your garden!

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
