Columbine

buttercup family, crowfoot family Aquilegia sp.

Columbine Columbine

Their feathery flowers light up with pastel colours from pink to purple. Their shape brings daydreams of flying birds, which is why their Latin name Aquilegia comes from the word for eagle. It blooms only for a short time, but when it does, it adds new flower shapes and textures to the garden. Height reaches 30–60 cm. As with other members of the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), the leaves, flowers, and seeds are toxic. Therefore, it should not be eaten.

Sow into seedling trays in late February in a warm place. Transplant into the open field from mid-May at a distance of 30 cm. Direct seed into the field beginning in April.
