How to Grow
Growing: Plant in fertile, moist, well-drained soil and full sun or partial shade; this flower appreciates being shielded from the midday sun. Direct sow in early fall, sowing the seed just below the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 60 days before direct sowing after the last frost. The seed can also be started indoors, planted just below the surface of a flat and kept at a temperature of 60-65 degrees F until germination; keep the soil lightly moist. Space seedlings 12-15" apart.

Keep the seedlings watered and control weeds. Mature plants tolerate some dryness, but should be watered in the heat of summer. Hot and humid weather may cause the plant to wilt, since this plant prefers cool weather and can survive light frosts. Flowers planted from seed will bloom in their second year of growth. After blooming, the foliage will die off. Established plants can be divided, though they will self sow readily; volunteer plants can easily be transplanted. Deadhead the wilted blossoms if new plants are not wanted. Columbine attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees as well as resisting deer and rabbits. Its natural growth in rocky areas makes it a good choice for rock gardens.

Harvesting: Columbine makes a lovely cut flower. Choose blossoms that have just opened for the longest vase life. Keep in mind that this plant can be toxic and should not be ingested.

Store Seeds: Store seeds away from children, sealed in their packaging in a cool, dry, dark place, or in a fridge. Never store them in a freezer as the sudden temperature drop is likely to kill them. Don't leave the seeds in direct sunlight as the heat generated may kill.

This item was confiscated by the authorities because it is illegal to send it to the US. this info was not in the info on the order form. I am not one bit happy about this and hope that anyone who wants to order from these people realize they are not being very forthcoming to their buyers!!!! I just am hoping for a refund..... After filing a case with Etsy....they closed the case without giving me a refund. I did look for a notation in the sellers ad (a second time) to see if they did warn buyers that this plant product could be illegal to send into the US....there was no warning. I recommend that anyone wanting to buy from this seller be very aware that you could be in trouble from the 'Port Of Entry' if they want to go after you for purchasing illegal plant material. Not a good Etsy experience to say the least!!
