Semiaguilegia ecalcarta-False Columbine

Propagating this short-lived perennial is simple, just let it go to seed, or carefully dig up self-seeded plants in early spring and transplant and although this cousin to the regular Columbine prefers full sun in cooler regions of the country, it also prefers a well drained moist soil. This plant is a native to China, blooms late spring to early summer and reaches a height of 8"-18" with violet to purple flowers. It is also deer resistant and possibly hardier under Zone 5 but with extra protection.
