Columbine (Aquilegia Caerulea Blue Dream) - These perennials are vigorous performers, and they easily establish from Columbine seeds. This Blue Dream Columbine has a large sky blue flower with white corolla. It's a long bloomer and will add a dreamy charm to any flower border or container.
Columbine plants prefer full sun in areas with mild summer climates, but in hot climates, they do well with partial shade in the afternoon. Aquilegia Caerulea Columbine blooms better with regular waterings, and cutting back old stems encourages repeat bloom. The hummingbirds and butterflies love Columbine plants, but usually both deer and rabbits leave it along. Most varieties of Columbines are profuse self seeders yielding a new crop of volunteers the following spring. Collected seeds produced from hybrid plants may not hold true in form to their parents.
Sow Columbine seeds in starter trays indoor 6 - 8 weeks before last expected frost. Press the flower seed into the soil but do not cover it. Light is beneficial to germination. Or, Columbine flower seed can be directly sown into prepared seed beds with loosened, weed free soil after frost season has passed. Sow the Columbine seed in groups of 3 - 4, and space the seed groups 16 inches apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
