Polemonium yezoense ‘Bressingham Purple’ is a charming perennial that forms a compact clump of ferny foliage with deep purple stems. The foliage is semi-evergreen, and in late spring, clusters of bell-shaped, violet-blue flowers with white centres bloom on tall, upright stems. The flowers have a sweet fragrance and are attractive to bees and other pollinators. This hardy plant is easy to grow and adds a lovely touch of color to a mixed border, woodland garden, or cottage garden. It also works well as a cut flower. For a stunning combination, plant it alongside other spring-flowering perennials such as Dicentra, Aquilegia, or Hellebores.
