Aquilegia chrysantha (Columbine) - Perennial. This is a large long-lived columbine with very showy yellow, irregular spurred flowers that tower above the foliage. Considered by some to be one of the most vigorous columbines for our climate. The plant is both mildew resistant and robust, reaching to 2-3 feet tall with the flowers to 4 feet. Plant in full to part day sun with average irrigation. Responds well to periodic pruning. This species is a parent of many hybrids found today.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aquilegia chrysantha.
