Kiri­gami Mix

Columbine Seeds

Aquilegia caerulea

Kirigami Mix columbine is a formulated blend of huge, upward facing 2-3 in., blue, pink, red, rose, white, and yellow flowers.

The columbines in Kirigami Mix grow 14-24 in. tall and because they need less chill to initiate flowers than other columbines, when seeds are started early, bloom is the first year. Established plants flower over an especially long season, from early spring to early summer. Kirigami Mix columbines dazzle in mass plantings, mixed borders, cottage gardens, cutting gardens, and containers. Winter hardy perennials to zone 5.
