Polemonium reptans 'Blount Blues' is a 2023 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of our selection of the US native (Minnesota south to Alabama) early spring ephemeral. Most commercialized plants of Polemonium reptans are from colder regions and have a well-documented history of dying or severely sulking in our hot, humid climate. Our offering is nursery propagated from an original Zac Hill/Jeremy Schmidt collection at the southern end of its range in Blount County, Alabama. Not only does Polemonium 'Blount Blues' thrive for us, it produces enough seedlings so we can actually share this amazing, heat-loving seed strain. The 1' tall stalks emerge in late winter, and are topped for us, staring in late March with terminal clusters of dangling mauvy blue bells.
