Details
12-14" tall x 12" wide (seed propagated). A delightful addition to the semi-shade border, Red Hobbit is a dwarf Danish selection with eye-catching red and white flowers. Hybridized from our native Rocky Mt. Columbine, it likes compost-enriched soil with regular irrigation and protection from the afternoon sun. This stable hybrid comes true to color when reseeding in the garden, unlike many other hybrid varieties.

    Comments about Aquilegia caerulea Red Hobbit:

    I never saw a single bloom.
    I tried some of your plants again this year--the catalogs and emails look so pretty--but not much success so far with your products.
    I ordered the Scrophularis-redbirds in a tree-last month. Very shocked to have received a plant that is smaller than the tag describing it--the plant is barely an inch high. We will see--maybe this was my last purchase.
