Description

Uniform and compact

This flower has bright, beautiful, bold colors that give off an island feel in your garden. This exotic flower has a compact habit. Very attractive for hummingbirds and other pollinators. Kirigami is perfect for containers and border plants. This flower has excellent uniformity and vibrant colors.

These denizens of borders and rock gardens also render interesting flowers for fresh cut use. The unique, 1½- to 4-inch long, red, pink, yellow, blue, lavender, or white flowers are reminiscent of hoop skirts, but with spurs extending behind them. Flowers are solid or bicolored and appear in May and June. Plant habit is an upright clump from 1-3 feet tall. The dainty, blue-green foliage is deeply lobed. Contact with the plant's may cause a skin irritation.

Start the seeds in your Bio Dome 6 to 8 weeks before last anticipated frost. (If you're using seed flats, place the seeds on top of the medium so they receive light. In the Bio Dome, they'll germinate either inside the hole in the Bio Sponges or on top.) Time was that you had to wait a year for blooms from Columbine seed, but not anymore. They'll take their time germinating—a month is about standard—but once they're up, they're off. You'll enjoy a full crop of these amazing blooms just a few months after sowing the seeds, and the lacy foliage will charm you long past bloomtime.

Germination

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I sowed all ten seeds, and was going to request a replacement for no germination, but lo and behold! After giving them almost 7 weeks, one finally sprouted, and then 5 more within a week following. No blooming yet as they are still seedlings, but very healthy and sturdy-looking. Just give columbine a long time to germinate. Patience!
