Polemonium caeruleum, commonly known as Jacob's ladder, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to Europe and Asia. Here's a description of Polemonium caeruleum:

Plant Size and Growth Habit: Jacob's ladder typically grows to a height of about 30 to 60 centimeters (12 to 24 inches) and spreads to form clumps. It has an upright, bushy growth habit with multiple stems arising from a central rootstock.

Leaves: The leaves of Polemonium caeruleum are pinnately compound, meaning they consist of multiple leaflets arranged along a central stalk. Each leaflet is lance-shaped and serrated along the edges, giving the foliage a delicate and fern-like appearance. The leaves are typically medium to dark green in color and arranged alternately along the stems.

Flowers: The flowers of Jacob's ladder are one of its most distinctive features. They are typically borne in loose clusters at the tips of the stems and have a bell-shaped appearance with five petals. The flowers are usually a shade of blue, ranging from pale sky blue to deep violet-blue, although white-flowered cultivars are also available. The blooms appear in late spring to early summer and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Cultural Requirements: Polemonium caeruleum thrives in moist, well-drained soil and prefers partial shade to full sun. It is relatively low-maintenance once established and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including clay and loam. Regular watering during dry periods can help promote healthy growth and flowering. Hardy in zones 4-9.
