Description

A beautiful deep purple columbine I’ve been growing in my garden for 10-12 years now. It seeds easily and comes back year after year. Bees and butterflies love columbine, deer and rabbits do not, which makes it a wonderful addition to the woodland garden and wilder edges of the garden. Once established it will bloom year after year.
