What Winter Conditions Will Jacob’s Ladder Tolerate?

I live at 6, 000 ft in southern California, have lots of shade in my garden, but my soil is mostly decomposing granite.

This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/jacobs-ladder/growing-jacobs-ladder-plant.htm
Polemonium is hardy zones 3-9 depending on the cultivar.
Jacobs Ladder grows best in full to partial shade areas in well-drained, evenly moist soil. The soil should be rich in organic matter, with a soil pH of 6.1 to 7.8. Too much sun or heat should be avoided because the leaves are prone to scorching.

Can I Plant The “Jacob’s Ladder” Plant in a Pot and Keep It Inside?

I have a Jacob’s Ladder plant. I love it; however, I live in an apartment complex where I don’t have any space to plant perennials.

Heidi, I don't mean to be a party pooper, but this perennial probably will not live inside. Of course, you can try, but the odds are against it. This article explains Jacob's Ladder: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/jacobs-ladder/growing-jacobs-ladder-plant.htm

Growing Jacob’s Ladder

I have a new grandson named Jacob and I want to get a Jacob’s ladder plant for his parents. Can you grow one indoors or outside only?

Congratulations!
Jacob's Ladder is a woodland perennial. It would be difficult to grow indoors, but a shady garden spot would be perfect.

Here is a link with growing information.

I did find a perennial named Jacob's Rod.

I would check on line with a Google search. You can also check Etsy and Ebay, they are often a source for plants that may be more difficult to locate.

Swapping Plants Locations

Hi
I planted Jacob’s ladder Polemonium and Euonymus Emerald Gaiety last May , 2 -3 months ago
I now want to swap their locations because I miscalculated the space they both need once matured.
Is it safe to do it now and if not , when ?
Thank you

Wait until fall when the weather is cooler. Transplanting breaks off some roots so moving it when the plant is struggling with hot weather is very stressful and could kill it. Keep it watered until the ground freezes as the roots are still developing after leaf drop.
