Gardeners' Notes:

If there's a better strain of columbine please let me know. I grow it as an annual in Southern California. It has a profusion of different beautiful blooms. Grows well in sun or even pretty deep shade. I plant columbine every winter, but I will definitely seek out this strain as it is the most impressive I have ever seen

NOTE: This is actually a series- not a mix- called 'Dragonfly Hybrids'.

AQUILEGIA DRAGONFLY HYBRIDS-Columbine-Plant 14"-16" apart. zone 3-8 Flowers form a delicate star of outer petals surrounding an inner ring with yellow centers. Long spurs project out behind blossoms. Graceful, blue-green foliage. A wealth of flowers in sun or shade. Med.24". Extra large flowers in bold colors of rose, blue, yellow, white, pink, and crimson.
General Information:
We offer many forms of this wonderful flower. Some flowers form a delicate star of outer petals surrounding an inner ring with yellow centers - some have long spurs that project out behind the blossoms - others are spur-less with double blossoms. All are graceful, with blue-green foliage, at home in formal or cottage settings, with its flowers at the center of attention. A wealth of flowers in sun or shade. All self sow without being annoying, and will yield interesting hybrids if others are close by to cross pollinate.
