A woodland plant, wonderful for partly shaded areas!
With soft flowers that range from white to pink to purple, this plant is fantastic for many kinds of garden! It grows fairly large for an herbaceous plant - it can get two and a half feet tall, or even larger in nutrient-rich soil. It grows in a bunchy kind of way, and its flowers tend to lean on plants next to it.
Usually found in woodland edges, Royal Jacob's Ladder is fairly adaptable. It can handle dry clay soils or amended soils. Like many plants, it will have more flowers in slightly brighter areas, though it does not like full sun.
