Biedermeier Columbine, Columbine
Columbines in the Biedermeier Group share several traits. Their flowers are strongly bi-colored, long-spurred and their stems are moderately compact.
In spring they put forth open mounds of three parted, soft green, lobed leaves. By late spring to early summer they bear erect stems of upward facing or nodding large spurred flowers that are strongly bicolored in an array of colors. Pretty golden stamens extend from the center of each flower.
Grow columbine in full sun to partial shade and fertile well-drained soil that’s evenly moist. The more sunlight the more important it is the soil has available moisture. They can be short-lived, but self-sow gently to replace themselves; though the seedlings will not come true to seed. Deadhead spent flowers immediately if you don’t want new plants to seed in.
Columbine flowers attract many pollinators and are pretty when cut for arrangements, though they are not long-lasting. These deer resistant perennials are terrific for cottage or open woodland gardens and mixed flower borders.
