“Columbine” is the common name for the genus of plants with the scientific name Aquilegia.
Columbines have an interesting ancestry and history of naturally spreading. Originally, columbines came from Central Asia and Eastern Europe.
Columbines grow in spaces that many other flowering plants cannot, so they can be quite useful in the garden landscape.
With so many colors and varieties of columbine, why choose just one? They will beautify any garden.
You should enjoy at least a month of blossoms from your columbines
Columbines are generally shade-loving plants that thrive in partial or dappled shade.
Rich, moist (but not soggy) soil is ideal for columbines.
Moisture control is quite important for maintaining columbines
