30+ Aquilegia flowers are highly attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, and these easy-to-grow Columbines are a wonderful addition to the summer border. Columbines are one of the easiest and most rewarding of all perennials. They adapt to many different kinds of climate and sun conditions. Their flowers are a treasure in spring and when they are through flowering, their waxy green foliage continues to add grace to the garden. Plant Columbines in a mixed border or in a mass by themselves. Sow Columbine seeds in starter trays indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last expected frost. Press the flower seeds into the soil but do not cover them. Light is beneficial to germination. Or, Columbine flower seeds can be directly sown into prepared seed beds with loosened, weed free soil after frost season has passed. Sow the Columbine seeds in groups of 3 - 4, and space the seed groups 16 inches apart. They do well in full sun or partial shade in well drained soil. Deer resistant. Zones 3-9 Instructions included.
