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?
You motoviated me so much! I found seeds on sale at the local nursery. Got some for 50 cent and 40 cent. William Guinness, harequin mix, barlow mix. PLUS, I found a Biedermeier at kmart for $4.00. YIPPIEE! It is in 3 clumps. so. I am going to divide the clumps. Thanks so much for posting the photo! You opened my eyes!!!!
My seeds were just from burpee and martha stewart. there are great prices on seeds now. 30% off.
look around. If you have Kmart. look for plants. :)
