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.
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
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?
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.
A Bee Balm or Monarda cultivator named Jacob's Rod-it is red in color.
Good Luck with your garden project.
I live in Iowa. Who sales Jacobs Ladder. So far I can't find a garden place that sales this flower. Thank you
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.

This is a Polemonium called Heavenly Habit.

There is a plant called Jacob's Ladder.
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 Ofra Anker Ofra@btinternet.com
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.
