Jacob's Ladder Seeds

Polemonium caeruleum Seeds, Jacob's Ladder SeedsPolemonium caeruleum better known as Jacob's Ladder is a hardy perennial flowering plant that blooms in early spring or summer. The flowers are either lavender or white and produce tiny brown seeds as you can see from the image above. It is best grown in shade with well draining soil. The seed pods are also pretty miniscule and can be easily missed if you aren't looking for them carefully.

Germination is said to be pretty quickly and should be done in the fall/winter. The best way to sow them is to plant the seeds where you'd like your Jacob's Ladder to grow. The freezing and thawing cycle of winter will naturally prepare the seeds to germinate in the spring. If you'd like to see a picture of the flowers you can find a picture on my other blog in the Medicinal Plant Garden post.
