Columbine: Yellow Spotlight - Seeds & Bulbs

Yellow Spotlight

This large, light yellow heirloom looks fantastic when massed together. Though Columbine's flowers are petite and delicate, they are very showy with their long spurs and fernlike foliage. Fragrant flowers bloom for six weeks, and will rebloom if deadheaded immediately after flowering. Leave the second flush of flowers on the stems so they can reseed themselves. Thrives in any sunny spot or shade with rich, moist, well-drained soil. Gorgeous cut flower. Flowers are built for hummingbird access! Heat tolerant and mildew resistant. Native to the Southwestern US and Mexico.
