Jacobs Ladder, scientifically known as Polemonium caeruleum, is a delightful perennial herbaceous plant that belongs to the Polemoniaceae family. This charming herb is native to Europe and grows in various parts of North America. Its common name is inspired by the arrangement of its pinnately compound leaves, which resemble the rungs of a ladder.

It is a hardy plant that typically reaches 12 to 24 inches. It produces attractive, fern-like foliage with numerous leaflets arranged alternately along the stem. The leaves generally are split into smaller leaflets, giving them a delicate and graceful appearance. The leaflets are typically lance-shaped and have a lush green color.

Cultivating it in your garden is relatively straightforward. It thrives in well-draining soil and prefers partial to full shade, making it an excellent choice for woodland gardens or shaded areas. This plant is known for its adaptability to various soil conditions but prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH.

Gardeners often use it as an ornamental addition to their landscapes due to its graceful foliage and eye-catching flowers. Moreover, the Jacob Ladder requires minimal maintenance, making it a favorite choice for gardeners seeking low-maintenance yet elegant plants.

In conclusion, Jacobs Ladder is a charming perennial plant appreciated for its distinctive foliage and lovely bell-shaped flowers.

Jacob's Ladder

I justed planted the bare roots. The roots look healthy and large enough to grow. I'll wait until next spring to see whether they become plants.
