A lovely plant for a partly-shaded, woodland-type border. From May to July, Polemonium 'Heaven Scent' bears purple-violet bell-shaped, highly fragrant flowers with bright golden anthers. The flowers nod above pretty foliage which emerges dark bronze to purple in spring, forming a lovely complement to the blooms. The foliage matures to dark green and is composed of leaflets arranged in an attractive ladder-like pattern, earning it the nickname ‘Jacobs Ladder’. A charming addition to a late spring border which will go on flowering until mid-summer. Try pairing it with Heuchera, Pulmonaria and Brunnera. Attractive to beneficial pollinators. Height and spread: 30-50cm (12-20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Polemonium plants in sun or semi shade. Polemonium plants prefer a well drained, moist, fertile soil. On drier soils, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost prior to planting.
Water plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. Deadhead faded Polemonium flowers regularly to encourage more blooms throughout the season. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Jacobs Ladder in spring to maintain their vigour.
