Aquilegia chrysantha (Golden Columbine)
Aquilegia chrysantha (Golden Columbine) is a Columbine, native to the Rocky Mountains, that is just too pretty to be true. Golden Columbine, a hardy perennial, grows from two to four feet tall and has large, golden yellow blooms atop wiry stems. Be sure to cut the blooms of Columbine, rather than pick them, so as not to disturb the shallow roots, and let the seed pods ripen for extras next year. Sun/part shade and good drainage, Zones 4-8. Quarts.
