Can I see your columbines?

mmqchdygg(Z5NH)September 7, 2006

I have been unimpressed with the ones I started, and wondering if the pix I see when I bought the seeds are 100x blowups of a teenie flower. Should I try again? I've got several lined up to go to the swap in a couple weeks. I really thought I liked these, and now the attraction is waning.

Can I see yours?

Motria, your combo is beautiful, especially against the color of your house! What is the name of the clematis?

Not sure about the clematis. My best guess is H.F.Young.

The columbine is a nifty deep plum with double blooms, grown from seeds that I snagged through my neighbor's fence. Happy that they came true.

How many seasons before I see blooms? Two with the standard 'three' for best show?

I have some getting big but no blossoms this year. Have to move the origami- they're burning up in a too-sunny spot. Also have some McCana's and rocky mtn ones growing. Hope to see blossoms next year and thereafter. I'm not good at waiting.

These are my second year columbines....bloomed wonderfully

I do have these is full sun. I have a few plants in shade, and they didn't bloom this year. I'm hoping for next year. I LOVE them!

Deb: They are gorgeous! I hope I get some blossoms this year. They are showing signs of life now.
