Loose Clusters of Blue in Late Spring
Sprays of softly-fragrant nodding purple bells bow on stems above fern-like mounding foliage blushed with purple. The leaflets arranged in pairs opposite of each other resemble the rungs of a ladder. Provides nice texture and contrast to neighboring plants. Polemonium Heaven Scent was bred by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens in Illinois. Jacobís Ladder prefers cool summer climates, although we understand that this variety does tolerate sun and heat more readily than others.

Polemonium General Information

Polemonium are an excellent choice for many garden conditions. Bright flowering, attractive foliage, long lived and extremely hardy. Great for shady beds, borders and containers. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Polemonium Plant Care

Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Polemonium seldom needs to be divided and is slow to recover after being disturbed. Cut down to basal foliage after blooming. Will self sow readily. Leave basal growth to overwinter and cut off damaged foliage in spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
