Jacob’s Ladder (Polemonium pulcherrimum) is a delicate, low-lying flower that can be found in Colorado’s montane and subalpine zones. It is most often found growing in the shade of spruce and fir trees. The flowers supposedly emit a skunk-like odor, although I have never noticed this particular characteristic.
