General Description

A compact habit and densely packed double flowers characterize members of the Clementine Series. In early to late spring neat, dwarf plants put forth masses of double, spurred blooms that may be red, white, purple, violet-blue, pink or salmon, depending on the cultivar.

These columbine do best in sites with partial sun and fertile, well drained soil. They are attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and work well along the edges of mixed borders or in spring containers.
