Overview

My first experience with columbine was at Camp Joy Gardens, where I apprenticed for almost two years. While there, I used to walk out to the garden with a cup of tea in on spring mornings and sit on a bench to watch dew evaporate from the field. Standing out among the sea of green were tall, fairy-like purple flowers with cute leaves that look like clovers. They bloomed all through spring and summer, and I loved including them in bouquets.

Columbine – Aquilegia coerulea

Life cycle: Perennial / Ease of propagation: Moderate / Hardiness zone: 3-9

My first experience with columbine was at Camp Joy Gardens, where I apprenticed for almost two years. While there, I used to walk out to the garden with a cup of tea in on spring mornings and sit on a bench to watch dew evaporate from the field. Standing out among the sea of green were tall, fairy-like purple flowers with cute leaves that look like clovers. They bloomed all through spring and summer, and I loved including them in bouquets.

As with many plants, once you notice them, they show up everywhere. I found columbine in many places we traveled to, and along the way I would save handfuls of seeds. I was very enthralled by their varied forms and colors, which ranged from white to blue, orange, purple, pink, yellow, and bicolor combinations. Some resemble clematis blossoms, while others have long spurs like larskpurs.

This variety, Aquilegia coerulea, has large, 3-3.5″ blooms with a white center and blue spurs. It has long, straight stems which makes it an ideal cutting flower. It is the state flower of Colorado, thus the common name Rocky Mountain Columbine.

Columbine is very easy to grow, but it takes patience as they do not flower the first year. Once established though, columbine re-seeds prolifically. With the right conditions, they will naturalize to your garden. Columbine can tolerate most soil types, as long as it’s well draining. They prefer partial shade.

Sowing Instructions

Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Cover lightly as light aids germination. Thin and transplant to larger containers when first true leaves appear. Plant out after last frost. You can also direct sow seeds in early spring once soil has warmed to 65°F (18°C). Thin to 10-15″ apart.

My Notes RE Bartering:

We are interested in bartering for organic or homegrown/homespun yarn, or other homegrown natural fibers that we can use for natural dying. We would also barter for honey, perennial fruit, nut, medicinal seeds or plants we don't have on hand. Other offers will also be considered.

You may scroll down to the Product Enquiry form to inquire about bartering with them and possibly setting up arrangements for a trade. All barters are facilitated privately between the parties involved. Barter at your own risk.
