Alpine Columbine

Columbine and Iris

Zones: 4 to 8
Bloom Time: Spring
Height: 18″

The Alpine Columbine (Aquilegia alpina) has blue nodding flowers above gray foliage that bloom in late spring and bring a cottage feel to the border.

They look best in groups of 3 or 5.

When they self-seed, I leave them be to allow a less contrived feel.

Because they are easy to grow from seed, you can save yourself some money by growing them yourself.

You can find seeds HERE*.
