Hi Brightlights

Yes there is a plant called "Jacob's Ladder" I have 2 one solid green foliage and the other varigated . Here is a link to the Wickipedia page about Polemonium_caeruleum


RE: WANTED: question

yes there iis such a thing, i believe its a perennial

RE: WANTED: question

This is what mine looks like

Is this what you mean? It's a perennial.

RE: WANTED: question

Yes I have this. Ordered one pack of seeds from Veseys a few years ago and WOW has this thing ever self-seeded.

It's now just about everywhere around the house. It multiplies via root as well as seeds and is one tough plant. Many springs have I removed chunks of ice off the plants only to see green growth underneath.

Mine is a light blue, but one of the plant clumps has a few white flowers. *shrug* Tried to separate this or get seeds but have always missed the seeds due to a rainstorm right at seed maturity time, so I have none of the white.

I have some seeds of the regular color if you are interested. Just need SASE. Email me.

Here's a picture that shows the white
