If you want surprises in your garden each spring, plant a few varieties of columbine, and see how they evolve. They are easy to propagate from seed. This plant is great for producing large numbers of seed and if you have two distinct species in your garden, it will not take long to have hybrids.
This year I have some "new" styles. I wonder what will come up next year.

I love this flower. My dark pink columbine. Just beautiful. I am starting some more columbines from seed, and I can't wait to plant and see them!
This is an origami flower. We are growing these in our garden and love the contrast between the blooms and leaves.

I have always admired this flower, but for some reason, I have never grown it. There's something about its name I find very pleasant, Aquilegia. I even like its common name 'columbine'. And the lesser used common names 'Granny's Bonnet' and 'Granny's Nightcap' will do in a rush.
While vacationing in Alaska this July, I ran across this gorgeous columbine growing wild in the edge of a friend's garden.
Due to losing my husband and my children not wanting me to be so far away, I had to move to the city. I miss my garden very much but it brings a smile to my face to be able to see the photos I have taken from that garden.
Of the two columbines we planted last year, this is the one that survived. The burgundy and white flowers are really lovely and we are going to add more colors this year.
