Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Simply the best variegated Jacob's Ladder ever introduced. A N. American native, Stairway to Heaven forms a low mound of medium-green ferny leaves, each leaflet strongly edged in creamy white and flushed with pink during cooler spring weather. Clusters of lightly fragrant violet-blue bells rise above the foliage in mid to late spring. Fresh new leaves continue to appear all season, keeping this variety looking fresh from spring through late fall.
