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.
