Columbine 'Winky mix' and our earliest in ground columbine
We were wandering around HomeDepot because we were in the area and saw this interesting looking columbine and bought it. The tag says that it's a 'Winky mix' but no other description. I don't like to buy things from HD because of the incident I had trying to return extra unopened boxes of grout which they were going to charge me a restocking fee for even after we bought thousands of dollars worth of tile and underlayment but that's another story. Anyway the flowers were too nice to pass up. I also noticed many more varieties of 'Nora Barlow' with different color combinations I never saw before.
This very pale yellow columbine was the first one in our yard to flower. Again I don't know the name of it (possibly Aquilegia vulgaris, the European columbine) it's not very tall but a very prolific bloomer.
