How beautiful! Another native to add to my growing list. :) (Landsdowne is so wonderful.)

Great columbines, Chey! Mine are happily blooming and mutating themselves and the wild species (A. canadensis, the red flowered one) has just started flowering too. I hope it will make many pretty babies.

Happy start-to-summer!
