Good for you. I haven't had much luck with them here.

Thank you for posting pictures.

It is beautiful!

Love the bright yellow and the long spurs on that variety.

I know...they are gorgeous and I'll never be without them again! They CAN get shaded out in complete shade eventually...at least, some of mine did in the past.

Mine are blooming too. They are in shade under an Oak tree.
I'm trying to germinate different colors.
I have sprouts of 2 out of 5 kinds.

I picked one up at Walmart this weekend. Huge and only $5!
Hopefully I can get it planted in time for it to set seeds for next year!

Thanks for all the post, I just received seeds from an nice family in Utah. I have always loved Columbine since living in Colorado. Cannot wait to see how well they do here. Zone 3-9 sounds like they should do fine here.

Hi Wally! I believe the columbine pictured above is the Texas Native, Hinckley's columbine, or the Texas Superstar, Texas gold columbine.. They may be the same plant, but whatever, they are wonderful columbines that takes our heat. Perhaps after mine blooms this spring I can send you some seeds although they are liable to be hybrids that have mixed with some other heat tolerant colors that I have.

Keep us posted on how the plants from the seeds you have do for you.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pictures of some mixed columbines ...

I have the very long spurred yellow columbine. from Arizona and west Texas. A kissing cousin of the Hinkley columbine.

From the seeds and cuttings I have received just from this site I should have a great garden come spring and summer. Our spring usually starts around the 14th of Feb. Already have a few plants started that should survive our winter for early blooms. I do not have much room but I do love plants and will keep filling any bare spot in my beds.

Nice photos! The native yellow columbine are so beautiful but I can't seem to keep them alive at this house. I'll keep trying and maybe hit the right spot one day.

BTW - saw a Fbook post from Barton Springs Nursery hoping to find a local source for seed because they ran short, so maybe it's not just me.

I tried growing them in a clay based soil that had compost mixed in and they would rot in the summer. Now that I am onut on a limestone based humous with a lot of drainage, they do a lot better.

Thanks, Wantonamara. Maybe I'll try again but in a big terracotta container instead of in the ground - might be able to ensure fast drainage that way and it would also raise the bloom a little higher.
