Polemonium reptans var. reptans

This plant is a dainty perennial for rich, moist soil in light shade. Eighteen-inch plants are covered with clusters of open bell-shaped pale lavender flowers in April and May. Leaflets are arranged in horizontal pairs along the stem resembling rungs of a ladder. This is one of the loveliest of all the spring wildflowers.
