Columbine - Nora Barlow Mix Seeds

  • Columbine grows best as transplants, but can also be direct-seeded in the fall.

    Seeds should be cold stratified to improve germination. Place seeds in a moist paper towel inside a plastic bag or container. Keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks prior to seeding. Cold stratification is not required for seeds planted in the fall.

    Press seeds into soil and do not cover. Keep moist until germination in ~30-90 days (may be longer with cooler temperatures). Germination is sporadic with some seeds germinating much earlier than others.

    Transplant after your last frost date into a part-sun location, with plants 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) apart.

  • Aquilegia vulgaris

    Also known as granny's bonnet, granny's nightcap
