Description

This cultivar is shorter than the wild species, dwarf and compact. Earlier flowering than most columbines. 

Flowers bloom in spring, providing nectar for hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. These plants are extremely tolerant of dry and sandy locations, and thrive in full sun or part shade They grow wild in our southern area of Canada (Ontario) in an old gravel quarry! Plants will self-seed and naturalize if allowed, but do not become invasive.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Height: 30cm, 12"

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds benefit from a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
