I love these! They grow great here and are very happy in the shade. I have about 8 of them in different colors, I only purchased 2 and they are happy to reseed themselves every year. If I dont like where the babys are growing I transplant them or just uproot them. I have them all up along my walkway and I'm hoping the will fill that area in for me!

This does well in the shade here In Lubbock. They need quite a bit of water, but the blooms are well worth it. The plants I have bloom profusely and when cut, they last quite a while in a vase. I enjoy these Columbines.

San Antonio, Tx.
I rated this columbine "Neutral" because I have not grown it myself. It is a very uniform, compact form of columbine that is very erect. The single blooms face upward and it supposedly will continue to produce blooms well after the first set. It is a suitable plant to grow in containers and in the border. It makes a nice patio plant.
