Jacobs Ladder Plant

Jacobs Ladder Plant: The evergreen climbing plant, Jacob's Ladder, is a North American native species. Although it comes primarily from Mexico, it is a resilient and hardy plant, well-adapted to most parts of the United States. American gardeners have enjoyed cultivating this lovely floral vine for about two hundred years—TN Nursery ships this vine to almost every growing zone in the U.S.A.

The name of the Jacob's Ladder plant has Biblical origins. In the book of Genesis, Jacob, a young man, dreamed of a heavenly ladder leading from earth to God. The climbing nature of this plant pays homage to that story.

Jacob's Ladder Uses in Your Landscape

Relative to other climbing plants, Jacob's Ladder stays relatively small. It generally grows to around three feet tall and is lovely when you place it on a small arbor, trellis, or a low fence.

They will also attach to tall, sturdier flowers and begin their ascent--some creative gardeners grow sunflowers in beds with Jacob's Ladder to create a charming purple and yellow show of color in the summer. It makes a great companion plant with any tall and sturdy flower to create a similar complementary display--the only limit is your imagination.

It needs a full-sun to a partially sunny spot in the garden if you want to see the glorious purple blooms. You can plant it in the shade if you need a low evergreen vine; however, it will not likely blossom in the full shade.

They require watering only during extended periods of no rainfall, twice-annual fertilizing (before and after bloom times), and well-amended soil. They are relatively easy-natured and won't demand much of your time.
