Polemonium (Jacob's Ladder)
One of the best features of the Jacob’s Ladder plant is its foliage. The plant forms a clump of densely packed leaf stems each bearing tiny leaflets, almost fern-like in appearance, that rise along the stem like the ladder of the biblical dream of Jacob. Loose clusters of flowers hang like bells from the long stems and come in white, pink, blue or yellow. Once established, growing Jacob’s ladder requires very little except for the occasional trimming.
