Columbine, Leprechaun Gold

100% of 100

Herbaceous perennial, hardy from zones 4a to 8b. With its stunning, marbled colors, one could justify growing this columbine just for the foliage alone, but the pendulous, deep purple flower heads are the cherry on top. The clover-shaped foliage grows 18 inches tall in mounds; the tall, slender flower stems reach to 24 inches tall and are topped with nodding blooms in midnight plum color. Try this dramatic, cold-hardy perennial in wooded areas, cottage gardens, beds, borders and even pots and containers.

Growing Tips: Perennial. Direct sow seeds in place in fall/winter or start indoors in late winter/early spring and set moistened trays in the fridge or outdoors for a chilling period of 3-4 weeks. Loose, well-drained soil is best. Part shade is ideal, but it can grow in full sun in early spring or mild climates and even full shade in warm climates.
