Columbines are now available in a wide range of colours and plant heights. The Winky series, reportedly a mildew tolerant series, produces loads of upfacing blooms held just above a bushy, compact mound of lacy leaves. The plants are uniform in habit and height with strong stems. This variety has sky-blue flowers, blooming spring to early summer. Great for edging and in containers. Either allow plants to self-seed or cut back hard right after blooming. Columbines are not long-lived plants, so seedlings will provide future generations although the colours usually differ from the mother plant.
