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.
