Thanks everyone! It was truly beautiful when it bloomed last month and the blooms seemed to last for weeks. Mings, I bought it at Lowes a couple of years ago. They have columbines now, but I do not know if this one. I am going there tomorrow and can check for you if you like. I'll also have seeds later.

My Lowes in Pa . doesn;t carry things like this. Atleast, they weren;t there yesterday! WOW! You are so lucky. I have one question though. I am confused by what you have listed here and what they list in the catalogue at http://bluestoneperennials.com They have what looks like what YOU have in their photo on page 5. BUT. when you try to match things up. it doesn;t jive. They say thats it is called Melba Higgins in the book . I am all turned around. have you ever seen their site?

Just searched their site for Aquilegia and they show Melba Higgins as a deep blue. Biedermeier is mixed colors and the pic they show, is but one of the colors.
