Hybrid Columbine...

After years of planting Columbine from nurseries all over Oregon, my garden has now morphed out some cool hybrids...and we recently named one after "Albin," our Swedish exchange student. He had requested that I do this. It's a blend of "Tequila Sunrise" and "Eggshell."


Hubby and I went out in the dark this evening and had some fun collecting flower heads from all over the gardens! We weren't able to get a sample of each, as it got too dark. Also, some have already gone to seed. He LOVES Columbine, which is why I make sure to plant at least 3 new varieties each year.

Wow. The amazing array of colours is just breathtaking. I am in awe and will certainly be gathering more seeds from my columbine and searching out new aquilegias at the garden centre. You are a gardening inspiration.

I am nothing on you, Sara! I'm just a lowly "gentlewoman" gardener. You, however, manage an EMPIRE! :)

Now I know what my columbine is called. I have the tequila kind. Yum. I prefer whiskey, though.
