Columbine (Aquilegia Caerulea Mix) - Highly attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, this easy-to-grow Columbine seed mix is a wonderful addition to the summer border. Growing readily from Columbine flower seed, this Columbine mix features large, 4 inch flowers. The foliage is also very special with its fancy-lobed, dusky blue-green leaves.
Columbines are one of the easiest and most rewarding of all perennials. They adapt to many different kinds of climate and sun conditions. Their flowers are a treasure in spring and when they are through flowering, their waxy green foliage continues to add grace to the garden. Plant Aquilegia Caerulea flower seeds in a mixed border or in a mass by themselves. If you cut them back after they bloom, they make a nice lacy ground cover.
Sow Columbine flower seeds in starter trays indoor 6 - 8 weeks before last expected frost if starting this seed indoors. Press the flower seed into the soil but do not cover it. Light is beneficial to germination. Or, Columbine flower seed can be directly sown into prepared seed beds with loosened, weed free soil after frost season has passed. Sow the Columbine seed in groups of 3 - 4, and space the seed groups 16 inches apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
