A calling for all foliage fanatics!

The bright golden variegation on this brand-new perennial makes its foliage a truly spectacular sight. The broad golden edging to each leaf is what helps to make this plant unique and really stand out in the garden all season even when it’s not in flower. These impressive leaves spring-like golden plumes from the plant’s centre, putting on a stunning show all on their own.

Polemonium – pushing the boundaries!

Polemonium Golden Feathers started life in 2016 in a production batch of Polemonium Lambrook Mauve. The clean and strong variegation stood out in the batch catching the plantsman’s eye, so the first plant was put aside for observation with little expectation that the variegation would be stable. As this plant grew, the variegation held firm ensuing the plant was a striking specimen – especially when the mauve flowers of its progenitor were displayed delightfully against the bright variegation. So, multiplication was the next test, and this proved highly successful with divisions holding the variegation well and growing into handsome plants.

This special Polemonium is simply magnificent, getting a gold seal of approval from Suttons. We feel sure it is destined to be a popular choice in this year’s summer garden and beyond.
