Columbine, Dwarf Mix (Aquilegia vulgaris) - 100 Seeds

$1.95 $3.90
These delicate, nodding blossoms grow wild in much of northern Europe. This 16" dwarf variety produces a lovely mix of colors that will brighten any space. Legend has it that these wildflowers grew in the footsteps of the virgin Mary on her journey to the house of Elizabeth which is why medieval paintings often included this flower to signify the Holy Spirit because of the plant's association with doves. The name "columbine" is derived from the Latin "columba," or dove since an upside down columbine bloom looks like a circle of doves around a fountain. Deer resistant.
