Previously only available in our Woodland Edge Seed Mix, Wild Red Columbine typically appears in late spring and grows well in areas of lower light (at least 4 hours of sunlight a day). Can grow as tall as 30 inches and works well in garden beds and when planted at woodland edges.

Wild Red Columbine is a perennial species that prefers well drained soils and is pollinated by hummingbirds. This native wildflower is a welcome sign that spring is here!

How To Plant Wild Red Columbine Seeds:

Direct sow seeds into prepared soil in late fall once soil temps are below 50 degrees ( usually mid to late November). Can also be planted in winter during natural freeze / thaw cycles and early spring. Plant shallow, no deeper than 1/8 to 1/4 inch and lightly rake to work seed in. Plant in partial shade to full sun. Can take 3 growing seasons to fully establish.
