This is a beautiful plant with gorgeous blooms. The colors on the blooms are quite lovely. This summer, it bloomed for at least 2 months. The flowers are very large.

Last year, my 2 year old plant bloomed for over a month without dead heading. I traded for as many columbine seeds as I could get this year :) Not sure if any will be as beautiful as this one, but even if they are close, they'll do.
