This stunning blue and white hybrid, growing about 30 tall, is one of the famous Song Bird Columbines, hybridized by Charles Weddle, one of Americas most respected hybridizers.
Its beauty mimics the colors and form of our largest wild columbine, the famous Colorado Blue Columbine, and offers this wonderful color combination to gardeners everywhere.
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.
