Cheery yellow columbine

The columbine is Colorado's state flower. You usually see the blue and white variety but ours are all yellow, and quite vigorous. They are shaded most of the day, so I guess they like that.
They are also vigorous self-seeders. I usually end up pulling out quite a few seedlings from between the patio flagstones. If anyone wants seeds to sow in the fall, just yell!


  1. those are GORGEOUS! what a beautiful summery photo!!

  2. Thanks! They are great as cut flowers, too.

  3. SO beautiful! I'm yelling -- and I can send a self-addressed stamped envelop if you would be so kind as to send me some seeds. Columbine is one of the few plants my deer won't eat. I might as well call them "my" deer since I'm providing a good deal of their food.
