This Columbine has execeptionally large vivid yellow blooms. The blooms are very long lasting with very large spurs. A nice addition to brighten up any garden. Mine gets mid to late afternoon sun.

This plant has large, very showy, yellow flowers that can measure over 3" across. The fragrant flowers reflect the sunshine of their Rocky Mountain home. Denver Gold blooms in late spring, and if deadheaded, will be a heavy reblommer. It should be plnated in full sun to partial shade in fertile, moist well-drained soil.
