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.
