15" x 10" wide, (seed propagated). The original seed for this rare native Columbine was collected in south-central New Mexico.'Little Treasure' is the result of many years of founder and chief horticulturist David Salman's breeding work with this plant to create a floriferous, uniformly-small-growing plant. With numerous bright yellow, upward-facing flowers 1" wide with 1 1/2" long spurs, it blooms for many weeks, beginning in late spring. The plant has a very attractive mound of foliage resembling that of a maidenhair fern. It thrives in compost-enriched soils and needs a semi-shade planting situation. Its diminutive size and colorful display of flowers make it very usable throughout the garden.
