Plant Profile: Jacob’s Ladder.

Common Name: Jacob’s Ladder

Latin Name: Polemonium caeruleum

Family: Polemoniaceae

This herbaceous perennial is beautiful in borders, cottage gardens, or right in the center of a strawberry patch.  They prefer partial shade, but our little gem does well in full sun with a partial beautybush canopy.  Hardy in zones 4-8. The deer seem to overlook the blue bells and the fern like foliage.
