Wild: Jacobs Ladder

Genus: Polemonium.

Species: Polemonium pulcherrimum.

A nice wild Jacobs Ladder in interior Alaska. Seems there are two forms. This one with larger flowers and petals and a much more dainty one that is usually in wetter sprucier spots. This occurs in the wild yard around my cabin. I intend to search it out this spring and try moving it to a spot where it can naturalize a bit more easily and I can watch the flower rather than watch it get mown over. :-)
