Would that all Dykes Medal winners possessed this cultivar's 
extraordinary attributes!  Not only does it grace my garden with an 
absolutely beautiful flower, but this plant shrugs off every challenge 
thrown at it - compacted concrete clay, deer trampling and grazing, 
minimal sun, dangerously frigid winter temps with virtually no snow 
cover, extended cold springs with half-frozen soil and no opportunity for 
early growth, rampant soft rot (to which STH seems entirely immune), 
borers, leaf spot.  There simply isn't anything that bothers this plant! 
Not only does it survive under these conditions, it THRIVES.  STH 
increases abundantly and blooms on tall stalks.  Hybridizers take note:  
THIS is what I'm looking for!!!

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN (LAUER, 1993) TB, 40", EM. S. off white; F. mid blue, 
lavender undertones

USDA zone 3b, AHS zone 4 - northern MN
acidic clay soil
