Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett' Growing and Maintenance Tips

Columbine thrives in part to full shade, in any well-drained soil. Plants tolerate full sun if temperatures are cool, but they prefer partial shade. They may go dormant in mid summer if stressed by heat or drought, but will emerge again in late winter. Plants reseed readily and plantings may double in size in two years.
