With light blue to purple blooms, darker throats and a bright pop of yellow orange stamen, the dozens of blossoms that hang above the dark green/purple foliage will lightly scent the air and brighten a full sun to part shade, corner area of your garden. Named Jacob’s Ladder because of the foliage, where the leaves are spaced evenly on both sides of the stem, the delicate blue flowers will steal the show. Much easier to grow than the native wildflower, Heaven Scent will be a favorite in your garden this season.

Native to temperate Europe and Asia, where it grows as a woodland wildflower, Polemonium tends to be a fussy perennial, not liking too much sun or too little sun, and prefers a consistently moist neutral soil. Heaven Scent Jacob’s Ladder has been bred to make care easier for you. Northern gardeners with cool summers will want to plant it in full sun in well draining soil kept moist. Mid South gardeners will want to plant in light shade or in locations with some afternoon shade for best results. Hardy to Zones 3 to 7, the hot humid summers of southern zones will be too much for this perennia, drying it out and burning the leaves.

Heaven Scent Jacob's Ladder Care

Plant out after the danger of the last frost has passed. Locate this perennial carefully, again, in full sun in cooler summer regions and with light shade in warmer summer regions. Plant in well draining humus rich garden soil with an average pH range of 5.5 to 6.2. Water regularly and don’t let it dry out, especially in warmer summer zones. Consider mulching to preserve soil moisture. This gal is going to want to keep consistently moist soil around her at all times. Fertilize in the spring when the plant starts to grow, using a controlled release fertilizer, then fertilize again when the flowers cease blooming in late summer.

Deadheading is generally not needed but removing the stem down to the basal foliage after blooms have ceased may trigger a rebloom. Prune again in early spring before new growth emerges to remove any damaged or diseased basal foliage. Deer rarely browse on these plants, making them easy to locate near a woodland edge. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, on the other hand, will find these lovely blue perennials hard to resist. This hybrid Polemonium will reseed itself. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years to avoid the center of clump dying out.

Heaven Scent Jacob's Ladder Spacing

Space your plants carefully, about 15 to 18 inches apart. Growing to about 24 inches and reaching 18 inches wide, you will want the room between them to encourage good air circulation which will help to prevent powdery mildew, a frequent plant disease that attacks them. Remove affected leaves immediately and apply a control as needed. Water in the morning to allow foliage to dry in the afternoon sun to help control leaf spot. Consider mass planting Heaven Scent for a spectacular display, giving you fragrance and a great place to cut some sprigs to bring all that loveliness inside your home.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
