Polemonium caeruleum ‘Filigree Clouds’ –
Glistening white blooms in clustered heads, that sit up on straight stems above ladders of lush ferny foliage. The filigree, double cut foliage really is an exquisite feature in a shade garden all year. It predominantly flowers in late Spring to early Summer. But when not too much else is in flower they can be caught shining bright. Plant Polemonium caeruleum ‘Filigree Clouds’ under trees and shrubs for great foliage contrast.
