Description
This new beauty takes one of the worlds most popular wildflowers, the blue Colorado Columbine, and recreates it in a somewhat shorter form, and with deep purple instead of blue blooms.

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.

Pots or in clumps on raised bed, it will work best it seems. It does add color to the garden, but found its not very heat tolerant.
