'Yellow Queen'

The most bloomiferous & longest blooming of all Columbines & it’s FRAGRANT, too! Easily reaching 3’ tall & 2’ across, this vigorous, non-dwarfed, perennial Southwestern native bears an awesome number of large, long spurred, clearest yellow flowers from Spring till mid-Summer here along California’s coast. The long nectar-filled spurs make for a sweet snack for butterflies & hummingbirds. Do provide some compost to the soil for most outrageous performance & cut back after it’s finished for a second round of bloom in late Summer. It’s mildew resistant & reseeds too!
