The enchanting world of Finnish gardens with the Polemonium Jacob’s Ladder. This perennial herb, often referred to as the Greek valerian, has left botanists intrigued by its origin and presence across Finland’s diverse landscapes. From old gardens to wastelands and dense broad-leaved forests, Jacob’s Ladder has firmly rooted its legacy, exuding charm with its wheel-shaped, fragrant blue blossoms, occasionally donning a pristine white. The plant doesn’t just come with historical richness but also offers an ornamental value, elegantly growing between 10 to 20 inches, adorned with finely pinnate leaves that subtly touch each other’s edges. Its flowering period from July to August is a captivating spectacle that few would want to miss.
