This garden favorite has been around for many years and due to its ongoing popularity, it has garnered many names. It is of European origin, and is sometimes called European Crowfoot, but it is also called Granny's Bonnets, as are many other Columbines.
This particular cultivar though is both "William Guiness" or "Magpie" depending upon who you ask and where they are from.
No matter what the name, the blooms are striking and hard to miss! Ours are planted out in our hell strip and many folks ask about them as they stroll on by our home. It is a perennial so it will bloom year after year during the summertime.
Germination instructions will be included with your seeds. If you're wondering though, these are very easy to grow. (45 seeds)
