Starting Aquilegia canadensis (columbine) from seed or root?
My favorite wildflower is the columbine plant. I started one from seed last year and it is growing well. I expect that it will flower this year but it isnt the native variety.
I cant find the seeds locally but I saw that they sell a little packet at Lowes with what I suppose is a dormant root and it is the native species. Will it grow more quickly and flower sooner rather than starting from seed?
I dont have any experience with planting just the roots. Do they take well? Are there any advantages to planting this way?
