About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Aquilegia eximia:
Planted in a front garden that is primarily devoted to xeric plants. I will be interested to see if it comes back in the spring. Gardening was difficult this year abundant to excessive rain in late July thru early October. Now no moisture at all for almost 2 months.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not sure about this plant -mine doesn't match the pics
from Manti, Ut
I planted mine around June in UT. The plants grew nicely. But when they bloomed, they were yellow and no bigger than typical columbines. I pay $3 for regular columbines. So, I paid more for these plants only to get plants that appear to be regular columbines. Go to your nursery for columbines.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought two of these plants. One came up, while the other died within two months of planting. The one that survived did not flower. Maybe it will nexth year.
hopefully 2nd year will be better?

About Me Master Gardener
It did not flourish in the first year, which is often to be expected. The plant arrived healthy, but struggled to acclimate a bit. I think it will be fine assuming it survives the winter. The biggest disappointment though was that I had one bloom on it and it was rather pale and in a shade of yellow. Not orange at all, nor was the flower any bigger than any standard Columbine I already have. I'm hoping to be proved wrong next year.
A different columbine arrived

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
