Variegated Jacob's LadderTouch Of Class Polemonium has delicate, lacy foliage that creates a compact mound.  The leaves are narrow and green with bright white borders.  In addition to the beautiful foliage, blue bells pop out of pink buds in late spring through mid summer. They are lightly scented. When the blooms are spent trim them back to promote new growth and hopefully more blooms.  Edge your shade garden or woodland path with these low mounding plants to add texture and a bit of color. 

Keep the soil moist but make sure it drains well. Clean up the damaged foliage in the spring before new growth begins.  This will keep the plant looking clean and tidy. Touch Of Class can be divided but it might take a little while for it to recover after doing so.  Usually it is not necessary.
