The Kirigami™ line of spring and early summer blooming Columbine has sturdy compact stems covered in perky, bright flowers that raise their heads to be seen. Red and White Kirigami™ Columbine does not require a long period of cold during the winter like older varieties, making them well suited for gardens in the warmer USDA zones. Aquilegia caerulea ‘Red and white’ Kirigami™ blooms earlier in the spring and can keep going well into early summer with occasional deadheading and little maintenance. 

This columbine is disease and pest resistant, so the dark green foliage stays clear and clean all season. Columbine is wonderful to naturalize in wildflower meadows and pollinator gardens. The mounded shape and masses of flowers look great at the front of a garden border or combined with other seasonal plants for a cheerful spring planter. The cut flowers are long lasting and add informal charm to arrangements. 

Kirigami™ Red and White Columbine Care

Plant Columbine in a location with well-draining soil and full sun to part shade exposure. This plant prefers a fertile, loamy soil with a near neutral pH. Supplemental watering is required for the first season or two until the plants are well established.

Regular fertilizing early in the growing season will guarantee profuse blooming and healthy growth. Choose a slow-release, granular fertilizer that has a balanced NPK ratio. Mulching plants annually also provides nutrients and improves moisture retention over time. Use an organic material like compost, shredded leaves, or fine arborist chips so that the material can break down and feed the soil.  

Columbines will be encouraged to form more flower buds with regular deadheading of spent flowers. Columbine is an early blooming plant that dies back in the summer before many other perennials. When the foliage starts to yellow and brown, plants can be cut back hard to maintain a tidy appearance. Protect potted plants from harsh temperatures and sunlight, and provide regular water during the growing season to keep the soil moist. 

Kirigami™ Red and White Columbine Spacing

Red and White Kirigami™ Columbine stays compact and eventually reaches 22-24 inches high and 16-20 inches wide. Space plants 16 inches on the center when planting in a garden border. Choose a pot with at least an 8-inch diameter opening when growing the plants singly.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
