Jacob’s Ladder

Another of the delightful plants that is well in flower at the moment is Jacob’s Ladder (Polemonium caeruleum). It is an easy to grow plant providing flowers throughout the summer. It forms neat spreading clumps of light green pinnate leaves, with stems around 2-3' high bearing clusters of open or bell-shaped flowers in various shades of blue or white with contrasting bright yellow stamens. I bought it for the caravan garden and transferred it to home a couple of years ago. It has done even better here than it did there – perhaps because it was too dry at the caravan.
