Columbine (Continued)

Little Lanterns and Lotus

I posted Columbines (Aquilegia) that are commonly seen in the nursery or farmer’s markets.  There are also double-layer columbines that look more like little lanterns that slowly turn upward before the petals fall off.  The other kind looks like a small lotus when it’s fully open.  They easily self-sow and don’t need much care.  I have them both in full sun and shade areas and they do fine in both.
