Polemonium General Information

Polemonium are an excellent choice for many garden conditions. Bright flowering, attractive foliage, long lived and extremely hardy. Great for shady beds, borders and containers. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Polemonium Plant Care

Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Polemonium seldom needs to be divided and is slow to recover after being disturbed. Cut down to basal foliage after blooming. Will self sow readily. Leave basal growth to overwinter and cut off damaged foliage in spring.
