Broad, bold, cream variegated foliage with 12 inch stems bearing light blue flowers from May-June. It's a very hardy large-leafed Polemonium introduced by Bill Cullina of the New England Wild Flower Society. The pink leaf tones during cool periods adds interest. It's much bolder and more showy in foliage then Polemonium 'Snow and Sapphires', however the flowers are more visually interesting on 'Stairway to Heaven'.
