Jacob's Ladder update - in full bloom now

Polemoneum 'Bresingham Purple' and Lammium macculatumIt's not planted in the brightest spot, so it's leaning toward the light a bit. In this photo, you can see the colour of the stems much better. I find that spotted deadnettle is most effective near plants with blue, grey or purple tones. When this newly planted deadnettle has grown around Jacob more fully, the combination should be stunning.

I Just love to see things in bloom so early.

And the blooms smell just like grape soda!

I thought you were talking about the Loreley iris at first. It has a strong fragrance that is exactly like grape Kool-Aid. The Jacob's ladder does have a scent that is similar, although in both cases I have to put my nose right up to the flower to get it.
