Where Did This Little Beauty Come From?

I don't remember planting it, I've never seen it before. And yet, here it is, in my weedy, rangy, struggling, clay-heavy flower bed. It's entirely possible that I planted it, and then gave up on it when it struggled and didn't do anything, so I forgot about it. Nevertheless, here it is. A gorgeous dark purple columbine, peeking up right were I can see it through my front door. What a treat!


  1. Columbine spring up readily from traveling seed. It won't take long for them to be all over your beds and they will also cross-pollinate and invent new colors and bi-color combos. Every year I have some new columbine somewhere. The dark purple are great though!

  2. I have gobs of them, love them. Would you like some seeds?
