Stairway To Heaven: The Plant

I've heard of various things named after Led Zeppelin-related items. The Zeppelin Loach fish, planet Jimmypage, to name a few.

Meet Polemonium reptans, other wise known as Stariway to Heaven.

It is a flowering plant in the genus Polemonium, native to eastern North America.

It is a perennial herbaceous plant growing to 50 cm tall, with pinnate leaves up to 20 cm long with 5–13 leaflets. The flowers are blue to violet, 1.3 cm long, with a five-lobed corolla.

The dried roots have a slightly bitter and acrid taste. The root is rarely used in modern herbalism. It is harvested in the autumn and dried for later use.

Polemonium reptans is typically found in rich, moist woods, often along streambanks. It range extends from Minnesota to New Hampshire in the north, and from Georgia to Mississippi in the south. It is most abundant west of the Appalachian Mountains.
