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.
