    Jacob’s-ladder is a lovely, understated plant. I had several, spread about in a previous garden. The flowers are quite beautiful and delicately coloured (as this photo shows), but the individual flowers are small and easy to overlook unless you really home in on them.
    I’d be interested to read what Richard Hebda has written, but the link above seems to be obsolete.

    Whoops, should have searched first — the article on Jacob’s-ladder seems to be here http://www.bcarchives.bc.ca/Natural_History/Plants.aspx?id=973
    … and is good reading for anyone who appreciates this plant.
