I have a lot of columbines... my granny had them and I got some seed from the purple ones and they are soooooooooo prolific here, you could almost classify them as weeds!!
No lie!!!
I am highly disappointed that I never got the pink ones from her because when I see the purple ones I think of her on a daily basis.
But as I had posted in some posts, I had fired my husband from weed~whacking because for 3 years in a row, I had a columbine from the property that I was trying to see what color the flower was.... When it finally bloomed the 4th yr it was pink!!! I was tickled pick because I thought maybe my granny had sent them to me.
and since others on the property that I was watching came out almost a real pale pink.
And an older gentlemen that gardened here in town had some dark burgandy colored ones and I had never saw that color and I got some send from him and I have those now,
Also got an "nora barlow" (that's a pink and white blend) and it's so pretty, quite different from the form that are the other colors and shape.
And also a miniture purple and white that's quite cute.
I had the yellow and white McKenna variety, but somehow, they didn't like it here and never reseeded for me..... The yellow was a nice color addition for me....
They are such a delicate flower,
but I think quite dilagent.
I will have some of those seed to pass on,
I know had to how to havest those.
Did you take the picture? Well, I guess obviously you did, do you know the name?
Is there a side view? The ones I have are a trumpet shape and some are doubles, the nora barlow is all frilly on the inside.
I'm curious about the stamins in the middle on your picture. Side view possible????????

done this have entertained angels without realizing it.
