Q.Jaccobs Ladder (Polemonium Caeruleum) Issues

Zone Cheshire, UK | Anonymous added on July 21, 2021 | Answered

Hi, I’ve had jacob’s ladders for many years without problems but a few years ago they started, at first I had standard jacobs ladders with blue/purple flowers and light leaves but somthing crossed with them and the flowers came out almost white. I didn’t think much at the time but for the last two years I’ve been getting malformed leaves and little flowering/growth. I replaced them with a new one (dark leaves) this year but after flowing once it has exploded with massive light coloured leaves. have I got a virus? what is up and what can I do? they grow elsewhere in the garden without issue.

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage to diagnose it. You can try contacting your local agricultural agency at this link:
