    • Jacob's Ladder is beautiful and hardy. Planted this in shade zone 4 where we lose a lot of shrubs and plants for the cold winters and heaped up snow. Came up beautifully late spring and is flowering throughout June with beautiful soft bluish-purple flowers. Leaves almost appear like ferns. Strikingly beautiful and one of the few plants we can grow here.

    • I bought several of these in early May. Both the blooms and foliage were stunning. I had to keep them in their containers for several weeks until my new garden bed was prepped and it was ready to be planted. They went through a period of looking floppy and yellow. As soon as I planted them they perked back up and are beautiful again. They get quite a bit of afternoon sun and are still performing wonderfully. I love this plant!
