Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Columbine, Swan Burgundy and White Columbine

General Description

The Swan Series of columbines have been bred for their uniform size, abundant large flowers and long blooming period. Their fresh, dissected, green leaves are lacy and form a compact mound. The 'Swan Burgundy and White' columbines features strong stems holding beautiful deep burgundy-red flowers with backward pointing spurs and white centers. The upright stems of delicate flowers appear in late summer. The blooms attract both butterflies and hummingbirds.

Swan columbines prefer full sun to partly shady locations. They should be grown in organic, well-drained soil and kept evenly watered. Columbines tend to cross-pollinate and self-seed, many different cultivars may pop up in the garden. They tend to be short lived so new ones from seed can be beneficial. Deadheading will encourage rebloom all summer long. Columbines are suited for the wildflower, rock or cutting garden and are most effective when planted in groups.
