Try going to Plant Files here on Dave's Garden site and type in Jacob's Ladder.
Jacob's Ladder
Polemonium caeruleum
If that is not the correct plant,look at the other entries under Jacob's Ladder and see if it looks like any of those. If you know the common names of your plants you can ID quite a few of them that way. Once you know the actual name you can find more info on how to grow it.
