Hybrid Columbines are herbaceous perennials in the buttercup family with delicate fern-like leaves and very showy spurred flowers that appear mid-spring to early summer. They can grow from 1 to 3 feet tall depending on the cultivar and flowers come in multiple colors and bi-colors. These plants prefer fertile moist but well-drained soils in partial sun to full shade. Provide irrigation during dry spells. Deadhead to prolong the bloom season and prevent self-seeding as they will not seed true. Cut foliage back if it becomes infected with leaf miners as it will grow back. A great plant for woodland gardens, naturalized areas, or cottage gardens. --
