 Native to shady environments, Jacob’s Ladder grows naturally in damp grasslands, woodlands, meadows, and rocky areas. No extra water is needed during the summer when cultivating the plant for reproduction. The plant’s long variegated leaves appear with a “ladder-like” formation. The flowers of the perennial birth heavy clusters of blue, lavender, pink, yellow, and white blooms in the form of tough stamens as long as they are not overwatered. Jacob’s Ladder requires less sunlight than other native perennials and appears more like biennials. 

 

 Also known as Greek Valerian, Jacob’s Ladder was first used for medicinal purposes in Greece to treat animal bites, dysentery, and toothaches. Still used in Western organic pharmaceuticals, especially in Europe, where it is native, Jacob’s Ladder has a soothing or calming effect when used in tea or tablet supplement form.
