Columbine, ‘MCKANA MIX’ is a graceful, compact plant that prefers a cool, moist, well-drained soil. The large, brightly colored spurred flowers to bloom from late spring to summer above mounds of fern-like, mid-green leaves. These beautiful, often bi-colored columbines are perfect for the middle of a sunny, moisture retentive border. They attract butterflies and bees. These widely flared flowers come in a mixture of bright colors that includes red, purple, yellow, gold and white. The overall effect is very bright and colorful. Columbine is also a great choice for rock gardens, naturalizing and they make a beautiful accent in a bouquet of cut flowers or arrangements.
May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the plant. Divided specimens may take some time to establish since they don't like having their roots disturbed.
