After several years of sporadic blooming this Aquilegia really took off this year! I had 3 plants originally. One of them disappeared after the first year.

The one that's doing the best is in a bed that was actually under water early this Spring for weeks after ridiculously heavy rains.

This year it grew huge with tons of blooms...just gorgeous! The other one isn't quite as large, but still very attractive. So glad I stuck with them.

Planted two of these last year and neither came back.

This is a lovely columbine, blooming freely in a container or the garden. I have three plants in a large container on a balcony in zone 5b. It gets some early morning and late afternoon sun, and a lot of wind which doesn't seem to bother it. Clear, green foliage. Subject to mildew and leaf miners.
