Deep Pink Columbine Flowers

Deep pink columbine flower
There are so many varieties of columbine flowers, and this specie has many layers of petals, which I love. In a recently trip to the Belle Isle Conservatory, I saw patches of columbine flowers around the pond.

Light and deep pink columbine
They must have seeded themselves each year, and can grow through the gravel paths without too much fuss. Yet, when I bought them and grow in my garden, they didn't seem very happy.

Pink Columbine


I give up the thought of buying them this year, and just enjoy looking at them from wherever I see them. My soil is not right for them to thrive, and I'm not a successful gardener. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. These are very pretty. Being a successful gardener is knowing what you can and can't grow.

  5. I had forgotten about Columbines! I wonder if I can get them to grow here in Cyprus? I will have to hunt for seeds. They are such a pretty flower.

  9. We all have those flowers that just give us fits that do not want to grow for us. I have too many to count. LOL! I am stubborn and keep trying in different spots until they give up and grow for me. LOL! Wear them down. It is a really pretty columbine. I love the double petals.Have a wonderful weekend.
