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.
