This mix will give you a sampling of all of the colors from the Kirigami series of columbine. We like this series because they flower the first year and have upright stems and upward facing flowers. This mix contains yellow, pink, purple, and lavender, which will give you a chance to find your perfect color or naturalize them into a shady wooded area.

Caring for Aquilegia caerulea KIRIGAMI™ Mix
Aquilegia grows easily in loose average to rich soil. The key for keeping it health is making sure the soil drains easily. Soils that don't drain and hold water will lead to problems with overall plant health. Columbine will grow in full sun to part shade, and benefits from a little shade, especially in the afternoon. In the fall cut back the leaves near the crown. In the spring remove only dead leaves. In the event there are insect problems on the foliage, particularly leaf miners, cut back the affect foliage and discard it, new growth will quickly replace the old.
