My columbine have really put on a show this year. It is just about done and I am collecting seed . Since my columbine is all planted together, am collecting it all together and labeling it as mixed. Will have some for the round robin. Columbine is my favorite perennial. Most of these I wintersowed the last few years. Its fun to see what the seeds will be with all the cross pollination.

Thanks Spiderlily!! I have a ton of new coming up that will bloom next year...I am afraid this garden with be completely full next year. This garden is partially shaded. I have a few out back in full sun and they do fine also. I put in three new gardens yesterday in full sun. So far I have three new coneflower and a couple garden phlox planted in them...I bet they also get filled with columbine. Will just have to be careful not to plant the few that require shade there. Do you have columbine?

Do they reseed themselves?Or do they live through the winter and come back in the Spring.No I have never seen any Columbine until you started sharing all your beautiful picture's.
