This dwarf plant features bi-coloured flowers of dusky plum-purple and soft creamy yellow, over a mound of ferny light-green foliage. Perfect for the rock garden, for the border's edge or even in containers and troughs. Columbines have been grown in gardens for centuries, and in warmer countries hummingbirds will often drop in to sip nectar from the flowers.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
