Jacob's Ladder

Years ago, I bought a few Jacob's Ladders to put in the garden, because they do well in the shade. I didn't realize how sweet the flowers were -- they have a delicate, candy-like scent, but I appreciate this plant more each year that it comes back up. This year, it is looking slightly different. The leaves have always had some variegation both green and white. But this time around, two of the stems have these all-white leaves (which can't be good for photosynthesis) but my, they are unusual and lovely.
