When you are working in the garden and deciding on your landscaping needs, why
not take a look at the Columbine. Whether you are looking for a shade plant or
a plant that works in the sun the Columbine has a variety of flower colors.
The Columbine works well in shade or sunshine with blooms occurring from
May to July. Columbines come in a variety of colors such as red, white,
yellow, blue, violet and multicolors. Reaching a height of from 12 inches
to 3 feet, Columbines can spread from 12 to 18 inches. The flowers are
considered spurred which gives them an unusual shape. The leaves will be
blue-green with a scalloped shape. The Columbine will seed itself if you
allow it to scatter naturally.
