Columbines have always been one of my favorites and I have never had any success in growing them in 9B. I tried in New Orleans too with little success. I think its the heat and humidity alas and alack... Anyway! On a positive note these pictures are bee-you-tee-full!

Yes, we can grow all of them, David. This one self-seeded itself in this spot - much too tall for that tiny area. I love the double pleated ones and the granny's bonnet type.
