Comments about High Country Gardens Aquilegia caerulea:
I've planted a few other columbines here in the mountains of AZ, and found that they perish almost instantly (in six weeks there is no trace they were ever in the garden, aside from the plastic tag.) These I planted so they get only morning sunlight until about 11 AM. They have survived a whole season. And two of three bloomed. I'm very surprised.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

very nice little flower
from Cody Wy
very sweet little flower
from Cameron Montana
The Creeping Golden Aster arrived and there weren't any plants in all four of them. The root system is no good. Most of all of the columbines are dead.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great addition to our naturalized area!
from Littleton, CO
I planted six of these in June of 2016 and they bloomed right away. I did not expect them to bloom at all the first year, but they were champs! They continued to bloom into SEPTEMBER! Amazing! We live at about 6000 feet and these are planted in a naturalized area on a north facing slope with no shade, so I was excited that they did so well. I'll be anxious to see how they do in their second season.
A very pretty shade lover
It sits with a yellow columbine in a special place surrounded by some pine and aspen. Seems to be thriving.

Looking Great So Far
from Denver, CO
About Me Getting Started
I planted these late last spring. Denver is marginal for Columbines. We are a bit hotter and lower than they prefer. I planted these on a well drained mound with plenty of drainage, irrigation, and some afternoon shade and crossed my fingers. They bloomed after planting and looked a little stressed during the heat of last summer. But they are blooming and going gangbusters as of Mid may. I think they will make it.
Just now coming up
from Arlington, VT
I planted two of these last fall and both have come back this spring. They're both still quite small so I can't say much else at this time.

Not For Pennsylvania
from Tunkhannock, Pa. 18657
It didn't grow at all. It is definitely not for the mountains of Pennsylvania.
