Are polemonium reptans shade plants?
Hi - I bought a Blue Pearl Jacob's Ladder a few months ago, and the tag said partial shade to shade. I planted it, therefor, in the shade (probably full, but not heavy, if that makes sense - shaded by my eaves).
It was horribly root bound, and despite my best efforts it floundered after I planted it (yellowed leaves, droopy stems). My overzealous Coral Bells grew over it, so I dug it up, put in some "quick draining" soil mix and replanted it where it gets a bit more light. It looks better, but still qualifies as SAD.
Someone on another forum told me that they are in fact full-sun plants, and are sure to die in my clay soil, despite any ammendments I might do. I would like the thoughts of this forum, please!
