Jacob's ladder is a favorite native plant for shady spots. It has long handsome leaves, sometimes variegated, with a ladder-like arrangement of leaflets. Heavy clusters of clear lavender blue, pink, yellow, or white flowers with conspicuous stamens nod atop slender stems. Jacob's ladder is a winner in sunny or lightly shaded beds and borders as well as in native plant gardens. Well-drained soil is a must.
The dainty spires of red or pink coral bells are fine companions for Jacob's ladder in light shade.Phlox
In light shade creeping phlox has flattish flowers in pinks, blues, and white that mix well with those of blue Jacob's ladder.Candytuft
The dark leaves and dramatic white flower heads of perennial candytuft provide a strong foil for Jacob's ladder in sun.
