The tricoloured foliage of this originally Chinese Polemonium yezoense Kaleidoscope, makes it remarkable. Clump forming, it is especially attractive planted in the front of a cottage garden border where its lance shaped, green leaves will emerge with purple edges that fade to a rich, creamy yellow as the season warms up. In late spring, tall, dark stalks then appear bearing lovely clusters of blue/purple flowers.

This special variegated variety was found by pure serendipity in a Scottish nursery in 2000 and has since been developed, being short-listed for Plant of the Year at Chelsea in 2018.
