Genus: Aquilegia.

Species: Aquilegia.

Columbines come in so many different varieties. I grow the 'Music Box' and the yellow columbine. It likes full sun or partial shade and fertile or average well drained soil. The blooms that appear from late spring into midsummer have spurs up to 4" long. Most are self seeding.

There were just a few bits of green showing when I found this Columbine on a discard pile September 207. I got it for free, gave it a bit of TLC and the results were well worth it. It has since, self seeded over and over again.
