I live in north Texas and have been able to grow the dorothy rose columbine. I have it planted on the south side of my house in very well drained amended beds. It gets some shade on and off as the sun passes through the large elms above it. It survived the terrible summer of 2011 and looks great this spring. I think it's about placement and soil in Texas!
