Description

30-36" tall x 18" wide. Native to the canyons of the Southwest, this is one of the most widely adapted of all columbines. A vigorous grower, it combines excellent heat tolerance and mildew resistance with a long display of fragrant yellow flowers in late spring. A good rebloomer if promptly deadheaded. Quite sun tolerant at higher elevations.
