Polemonium yezoense Purple Rain is one of the best new introductions in recent years. With bronze-purple lacy foliage, dark stems and violet-blue flowers, it is the darkest flower form of Polemonium available. 
Polemonium yezoense Purple Rain is a striking clump-forming perennial with mounds of finely cut deep foliage that deepens from a light green to a rich dark purple hue in spring and autumn.  This genus is distinguished by its attractive fernlike foliage, dozens of tiny leaflets are held out perpendicularly to the central stem, like rungs on a ladder, hence its other name Jacobs Ladder.
In late spring or early summer, dark-burgundy stems rise upward and display loose clusters of five-petalled, bell-shaped flowers that are violet-blue. In the cream-coloured centre of each flower are orange stamens each covered with pollen. Deadheading may see the plant reflower again in early autumn. 

This fabulously hardy and vigorous garden plant will perform at its best in either full sun or part-shade but also likes a cool, moist soil. Polemonium yezoense mixes beautifully with other leaf and flower colours and is an excellent choice for mixed borders, woodland gardens, rock gardens and as a stand-alone specimen where their attractive flowers draw attention to their mounds of lovely, dark coloured foliage.
