Plant Information

The famous Clementine Columbines are hybrids with fully doubled flowers. The blue, red, purple and hot pink (Salmon Rose) are big favorites.

The Wild Columbines Many people think columbines are the loveliest flowers of all, and they are certainly important in the wildflower world. Many important species are North American natives. Everyone in the Northeast loves the Wild Eastern Columbine, the beautiful smallish red one, Aquilegia canadensis, and of course, everyone in the Rockies loves the State Flower of Colorado, the large, blue Colorado Columbine, A. caerulea. There are important species native to Europe and Japan as well.

    Comments about American Meadows Columbine Clementine Purple:

    This plant is even prettier than expected. Planted as soon as I received it, minimal growth last year but this Spring it doubled in size. It is loving it's location and established itself nicely right where I wanted it. Planted in the front of my garden with the Pink Coneflowers in the background. The beautiful blue flowers compliment the Magnus Echinacea Pink Coneflowers. Very, very, happy with this selection.

          What I learned is that it can't take the TX heat. I moved it to a place with more moisture and afternoon shade, so next year they ought to be beautiful. In the meantime, their delicate leaves are really beautiful.

          learned quickly that Texas summers are too severe for it ... moved to a part shade area with more moisture and it perked right up. Looking forward to blooms next Spring.

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
