Clementine Dark Purple Columbine
Rabbits and Deer Leave it Alone, but the Hummingbirds and Butterflies Simply Can't Get Enough!
The Clementine series is the most floriferous Columbine we have ever grown, and it deserves a place of honor (and a large planting!) in your sunny to partly shaded garden this season. Self-sowing freely, this plant is unpalatable to rabbits and deer, and asks only for an autumn shearing to return bushier and more bloom-happy than before. A magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds, it is a cutflower-lover's dream. 'Clementine Dark Purple' is one of those hybrids that, when introduced, puts all previous varieties to shame with its improved habit, abundant flowering, bright colors, and ease of care. Enjoy! Zones 4-9.
