This variety changed my mind about columbine (I was a lukewarm fan) and about the color yellow in my garden. It is absolutely stunning with large, long-lasting very soft pale yellow flowers. It reblooms for me as well, although no other columbine that I have does so.

I grew these from seed last year. Some bloomed the first year, but they are all blooming this year. Really beautiful flowers with a pale yellow outer petals and yellow interior.
